If you’ve ever booked Swiss chard and wondered what could be done with those fabulous looking stems, look no further. Here’s a recipe
Swiss chard stems, cut in 1 ½ inch pieces
How to Make It:
Preheat your oven to 400 F.
The stems are quite hard, so they need to be softened before baking them with the parmesan. Place them in a pot with boiling water and boil for about 5-6 minutes.
Drain the water and place the stems on a non-stick or greased baking surface. Then sprinkle with pepper and Parmesan or other hard cheese and bake in a 400 F oven for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.
Serve warm and eat as an appetizer or as an accompaniment with your meal.
