Bright Rainbow Lights

We have rainbow chard this week so if you are scratching for ideas for how to eat it this week’s newsletter is written for you (white chard recipes work just as well).

Lentil dal with hearty greens together with naan bread (yes, from the ready-made or frozen section unless you really are up for making from scratch) is definitely a recipe to put those beet greens to work (yes! you can eat those beetroot tops) as well as swiss chard.

Be really innovative and use your swiss chard leaves as taco shells as suggested by this swiss chard taco wraps with cumin-lime sauce. You don’t have follow the wraps recipe exactly, simply fill with your favourite chilli con carne and some cooked wild rice if you fancy. Or never thought of using swiss chard as salad? Here’s one for you: chard salad with garlic breadcrumbs and parmesan.

For the fuss-free mid-week supper this really easy but delicious one pot chicken and rice with swiss chard nails it, and makes use of your carrots (or parsnips) too! And a great meal to make in make in advance  and to come home to is the white chard stew/soup recipe – canned tomatoes would work just as well and it’s great for your less-than-fresh-out-of-the-oven bread.

For your other vegetables in your box here are a few ideas from our past newsletters/blog posts:
