Swiss Chard

Eat it. Its good for you. Its colorful and grows almost year round!
1 cup of cooked Swiss Chard contains:
  • 572 mcg of Vitamin K
  • 5493 IU of Vitamin A
  • 31 mg of Vitamin C
  • 150 mg of Magnesium
  • 960 mg of Potassium
  • 101 mg of Calcium
  • 3.7 g of Fiber
  • 58 mg of Phosphorus
  • 15 mcg of Folate
  • 10 mcg of Biotin
 Tonight I sauted some swiss chard with some of that rosemary infused olive oil, some truffle sea salt, mushrooms and onion but honestly you can use almost anything. SO tasty!

  1. AHHHHH.... I LOVE swiss chard! It's easy and satisfying to grow, and makes spinach taste a little pale (but I still like spinach). I haven't heard of truffle sea salt; what is that? Did you get it at Buck's?
