Time to Diversify: Creamed Swiss Chard

Thursday, August 15, 2013

By now you're probably sick of Swiss Chard and you've decided to just let it seed out in your garden because you can't keep up with it. If that's not the case, well then - do I have a treat for you! I made some creamed Swiss Chard about a month ago and even my dad liked it. It would go perfect with a grilled pork chop and maybe some apple sauce. Because well, you should always have apple sauce with your pork chop. It's like peas and carrots.

I do recommend leaving out the stems in this recipe. They say to keep'm, but they're too bitter for me. In fact - I never keep the stems any more. Sorry - does that make me wasteful? It's better than letting it all go to seed! Maybe.

The recipe I used is right here.

I used mascarpone and milk instead of half and half (50/50). Because I almost always do, that's just what I have on hand.

Everyone said if I just top off my Swiss Chard with bacon, it would be good. No matter what. They're right. I still have some more experimenting to do, but I've found that it can really take the place of spinach any day. I may still prefer spinach, but it's good to diversify (today's lesson).

It is not wasteful to toss the stems. You can compost them for future use. I would consider you a good steward. Afterall recycling is a practice that can help sustain our natural resources.
