Superfood: Rainbow Chard


Rainbow Chard is a superfood: it comes in super pretty colours and is one of the most nutritious vegetables on the planet. It contains 13 different polyphenol antioxidants and loads of Vitamin K and it’s really good for regulating blood sugar.
It’s also cheap at the moment.
This is how I like mine:
* Wash thoroughly
* Discard slimy and holy bits
* Cut the stems in (2.5cm) 1-inch pieces and put aside.
* Chop the leaves roughly
* Boil the stems in lightly salted water for 2-3 minutes
* Add the leaves to the boiling water for almost a minute.
* Drain well
* Make a dressing with 2 minced garlic cloves (less for the kids), 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.
* Pour over the chard and mix in

  1. We love chard! With any extras I puree them in the food processor and freeze. I then add them to smoothies for my toddler (and myself) another way to get a lot of greens!
