With the summer weather upon us, it is wonderful to see the abundance of fresh produce growing in our Ontario fields. This week on Plan B Farms, we harvested gorgeous organic Swiss Chard.  This leafy green is not only low in calories but it is one of the most nutrient rich and healthy vegetables out there! Swiss Chard can be eaten raw or cooked but raw chard is less bitter than cooked chard. This vegetable is very versatile and a great addition to salads, stews, soups, pastas, pizzas or sautéed with some Olive Oil, S+P. The possibilities are endless!

My farm to table recipe this week features the yellow chard. I have incorporated it in a summer fresh bruschetta topped on a grilled baguette. The mixture is also great on its own as a light lunch salad or it can be served as a side to any grilled meat or seafood as a lighter or gluten-free option.
I can now officially say, happy summer!!
Warm Regards,
Irene
