Lemon Garlic Rainbow Chard

Hello All!

So you already know I’m obsessed with my Farm Fresh to You CSA deliveries.  However, I did notice that despite the crazy variety of items that are offered, I was kind of sticking with the same basics.  So, I made a rule for myself.  Every other week, I was going to try something new.  Now this could mean that I’d leave something in my box that I wasn’t familiar with, or if they loaded up my box with the basics, I’d add something new.  Sadly, some of these additions died a slow death in my crisper because I’m human and I gravitate towards the familiar.  But all in all, I’m happy with this experiment.  I shared the delicata squash recipe that I used on Thanksgiving and in that vein, I’d love to share with you the recipe I used for rainbow chard last night.

Lemon Garlic Rainbow Chard


Allrecipes is my favorite food app so it’s become my go to.  I just type whatever ingredient I’m trying to use up and then pick from the results.  This one both looked yummy and I had all the ingredients on hand.

I made it to accompany the preseasoned salmon from Costco.  Both took about 30 minutes which is always a huge plus for a weeknight meal.  My only note is that where it calls for a pinch of red pepper flakes, just use a pinch.  I may have overdone it.  The only modification I made was halving the recipe because I had one large bunch of chard.   It came out delicious.

If you’re in Northern California and you want to check out the CSA I use, it’s and you can use code Stac4899 to save $15.00.
