Rainbow Chard is a gift that keeps in giving from now right through into the winter. But this side dish is perfect for summer meals, bbq’s and so much more. We love to use a small fresh red chilli too, giving it an extra kick. Simple fresh and natural ingredients that bring out the flavours and colours of this wonderful vegetable.

Ingredients:

  • Bunch Rainbow Chard
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 Large Cloves Garlic
  • Small resh red chilli or Small pinch chilli flakes if wanted
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

    STEP 2: Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in garlic, chilli, and chard stems; cook whilst keeping it moving for 3 minutes until garlic mellows and stems begin to soften.

    STEP 3:Stir in shredded chard leaves, cover, and cook 3-5 minutes over medium-low heat. Stir, re-cover, and continue cooking until chard is tender to the taste. Toss with lemon juice and some good quality sea salt to serve.
