Off the Beaten Aisle: Rainbow Chard

by in Recipes, August 5th, 2011

rainbow chard quiche
It’s a beet, minus the root.

Which doesn’t make sense. Except it does. Because it’s chard, one of a growing number of common yet often overlooked greens lurking at your grocer.

Chard — sometimes called Swiss chard or rainbow chard (when it sports brightly colored stalks) — really is a relative of the beet.

But unlike traditional beets — which put their energy into producing finger-staining roots, chard instead produces big, tender leaves and crunchy stalks.

Chard has been around for thousands of years and likely originated in the Mediterranean, where it was in heavy culinary rotation until spinach came along.

cherry pie recipe
It’s week four of our season-long garden party, Summer Fest 2011, where we welcome food and garden bloggers to feature garden-to-table recipes and tips. We’ll help you to enjoy all that this season has to offer. So far, we’ve delved into cucumbers and peaches. This week we’re getting creative with cherries.

What tastes better than sweet, crisp cherries plump with juice at the peak of the summer season? Sweet, crisp cherries in a warm, delicious pie, of course. Bing cherries range in color from a deep crimson to almost black, and their firm flesh makes for a perfect pie filling. Add a bit of quick-cooking tapioca to thicken the mixture, and you’re all set to pour it into an all-butter pie crust like the Food Network Magazine version above.
