GrowCookEat: Swiss Chard Recipes

Last week we had a great Q&A session on Organic Gardening with three experts in the field. If you missed that, you can go check it out over here. Lots of great information! The winner for last week’s giveaway is: Liz. Congratulations! You’ve won a copy of Grocery Gardening, by Jean Ann Krevelen and a Personalized T-Shirt and Bag from Shenandoah Growers.


Today I wanted to talk about Swiss Chard. I’ve cooked with it a few times and I like it, so I decided to plant it in the garden this year. The only problem? I probably planted double what I actually needed.


I need more recipes! What is your favorite way to cook and eat Swiss Chard? I’d love it if you could share your recipes in the comments section. I can’t wait to try some new dishes!

I’ll probably still plant Swiss Chard next year, but not so much and instead of the standard red I think I want to plant the Bright Lights Mix instead. Look how pretty it is!
