Along with a range of other fresh, tasty, organic veg, this week’s boxes will contain the good old favourite, chard.
Also known as Swiss chard, silverbeet, rainbow chard, and roman kale, chard is in the same family as spinach and beets. As such, it’s an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, and the B complex group of vitamins, as well as magnesium, potassium, iron and fibre. Health-wise, it’s great for preventing osteoporosis and anemia, and protection from cardiovascular diseases, and colon and prostate cancer.
If you’re looking for inspiration with what to do with your chard, why not try this delicious Greek-inspired silverbeet (chard) pie? It’s perfect hot or cold – making it ideal for what’s beginning to look like yet another changeable British summer!
