Swiss chard with feta
I have this thing where I tend to overbuy vegetables. It happens when I go to the supermarket, to the market or if I order online, like I did this week. Swiss chard is not something you can easily find in the super markets here, so ordering it online is usually the better option. But I have bought way too much vegetables, so needed to quickly use up some of it. Swiss chard is best used within one or two days after you buy it. So I decided to make a delicious lunch dish with it.
Swiss chard is super healthy and packs a lot of vitamin K, but also A en C. In terms of minerals you can find a good dose or iron and magnesium. Something we can all use more of! So if you needed an extra reason to eat this delicious vegetable, now you have one.
Quick and easy
As mentioned I made this for lunch. It’s a fairly quick and easy dish to make. It will roughly take you 15 minutes so for me that works for lunch. Of course you do have to work from home or it will be more difficult. Bringing it for a work lunch to the office, is not a good idea. It will get one wet mess. So best to make it fresh and eat right away.
I’ve been on a feta streak lately. For good reason as I love using feta. It’s salty and easy to incorporate into loads of different salads. Or stir fries such as this one. O and a tip if you have feta left over. You can easily crumble it and freeze it. You might have noticed that keeping it in the fridge, the feta usually goes bad quite quickly.
If you buy Swiss chard make sure you buy stalks in different colors. That way you get the biggest variation in anti-oxidants. Plus it looks nice.
Preparing the Swiss chard with feta, cut the stalks and keep them separate. You will want to add those to the wok first as they need just a little bit longer to cook. Add the greens later and let them wilt just as you would with spinach.
Add to a bowl and sprinkle with the feta and the roasted pine nuts!
