This versatile dark leafy green with spectacularly colored ribs has a spinach-like flavor.
Who knew it's not Swiss? The leafy green "Swiss Chard" is actually a variety of beet. Its leaves are wide and flat with a white, yellow or red rib (which is excellent chopped and thrown in to soup!). We're big fans of Swiss Chard for multiple reasons (outside of the fact that no one knows why this Mediterranean-derived plant is called "Swiss"). Its spinach-esque flavor is the perfect complement to our comforting winter meal. Chard is versatile- it can be sauteed, steamed, cooked into soups or eaten raw. These dark leafy greens contain 13 different types of antioxidants! Chard's Vitamin K, C and A content is through the roof, and it is known for being one of the top healthiest vegetables.
