What a beautiful vegetable! (In fact, chard is often grown ornamentally.)
Chard isn’t just pretty, though, it’s also delicious and very nutritious. In addition to an array of vitamins and minerals, chard contains at least 13 different antioxidants.
While you can eat the tender, young leaves raw, chard is generally enjoyed cooked.
Look for a variety of colorful ribs in red, green, and yellow, and sauté them with a bit of olive oil and garlic, or add them to a fritata or vegetarian lasagna.
