Four vastly different ways of using Rainbow Chard ๐ŸŒˆ
Posted December 4, 2023, 10:37 am

Hi, it’s me, farmer Chloe. ๐Ÿ‘‹

If you have met me farming in your workplace, you’d heard me say, “I personally love Rainbow Chard”.ย In my opinion, Rainbow Chard (aka Swiss Chard) is the most beautiful crop on Grobrix because of its colourful, hardy stems. Surprise, surprise, it’s also a delicious and versatile crop! ๐Ÿ˜‹

 

So here are four vastly different Rainbow Chard recipe ideas for you to try:

 

 

1. Elevate your INDOMIE!

This, my fellow friends in Singapore, is the easiest yet satisfying WFH lunch fix.

 

Not much of a recipe per se, but stir-frying Chard (with mushrooms) and adding it to Indomie make this instant noodle instantly healthier and more wholesome. Of course, you can add anything you like – raw onions, fried egg, or fried tofu.

Stir-fried Chard tastes a lot more interesting than your typical Asian Green (like Pak Choy) for this combo, and I also find Chard’s stems taste less bitter. This is just of the many creative Indomie ideas, give it a try!

 

 

Ps: if you have yet to try Indomie/Ibumei Mi Goreng, you are missing out on life.ย 

 

 

2. Frittata or Quicheย 

Because I can’t bake, I made a frittata, but one of our workplace farmers tried using Chard for quiche, and her verdict was, “It tastes great!”ย 

I followed this Rainbow Chard and Mushroom Quiche recipe, which was perfect because it doesn’t require me to make a crust (if it did, I’d fail miserably). ย ย 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Ricotta Stuffed Swiss Chard Rollย 

All you cheese lovers out there, this one is for you. As indulging as four cheese pizzas, but make it keto, vegetarian, gluten-free and low in carbohydrates ๐Ÿคค How awesome! ย This shall be the next Chard dish I make when my Chards are ready for harvest!

The leaves of a mature Chard are huge. Hence, they make great replacements for wraps. Check out this Chard Roll recipe by Tastemade; it’s pretty close to a Vietnamese Spring Roll recipe but uses Chard leaves instead of rice paper.

 

 

4. Swiss Chard Pancakes

This one might be the most effortful to make among the five, but who doesn’t like a savoury, healthy pancake ๐Ÿฅน?ย Plus, we growย Flat Parsley too ๐Ÿ˜.

Why should you include Rainbow Chard in your diet?ย 

 

Here’s why –ย 

 

Rainbow Chard is an excellent source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K (716% of the daily value per 100 grams ๐Ÿคฏ), and antioxidants, which helps protect the body against oxidative stress and inflammation.

 

What’s more? Our brand ambassador, nutritionist Charlotte Mei tells us that we should “i๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—น๐˜‚๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜ ๐Ÿฏ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ถ๐˜๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น,” which helps to maximise our intake of the different types of polyphenols, and hence benefit from a variety of antioxidant activity.

 

 

 

 

This is easily achieved with Rainbow Chard! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜‰
