Weekly Cooking Tip: Cooking with Chard and Bok Choy
What do I do with Swiss Chard?
This suggestion came in from veggie box subscriber Candace. Timing was perfect because I've been pretty busy all week:
I don't know if you're looking for more ideas to suggest to customers for using Swiss chard (or any other leafy green) or not, but if you are: Any recipe that someone would use cooked spinach in, Swiss chard is a great substitute. I also think it tastes great when chopped up and added to tomato sauce for pasta. Just make sure that any stems, or sturdier greens like kale, cook for a bit longer so they are tender. Just a thought, if it fits, great, if not, totally fine.
What about Bok Choy?
Your'e getting some Bok Choy (same as Pac Choi) in your bags this week. I love treating the stalks like celery--chop them up and put them in a salad. The leaves too. If you search through the farm's blog, there's an audio clip from about a month ago in which a local chef gives you one or two other tips.
