Colourful Rainbow Chard
Rainbow chard is delicious and has bright colorful leaves and is a relative of the beet. It’s like a beet minus the root, it’s super tasty and best of all so colourful.
But unlike traditional beets - which put their energy into producing producing finger staining roots, Rainbow Chard instead produces big, tender leaves and crunchy stalks.
The stalks which can be white, yellow, red, purple, pink and striped the stalks resemble celery with a sweet taste.
Chard is an excellent source of fiber, vitamin K ( just one large leaf has four times the daily requirement), vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium, magnesium, and manganese. It’s a good source of vitamin E, copper, chlorine, calcium, and riboflavin.
Chard is very versatile vegetable it’s great to sauté or stir fry. For the evenest cooking remove the colored ribs/stems from the leaves, then chop the stems and start cooking them before you add the leaves.
Being so versatile can be used in an omelette sautéed with diced onion, added to salads, even used as a pizza topping.
So colourful the kids love it we add it to our family quiche.
