Tuesday Takehome- My Market Haul + a Recipe

Another beautiful CSA share pick-up at the Farmers' Market! This week I was graced with:

Swiss Chard
Beet Greens
2 type of Kale
Kohlrabi greens
a bunch of lemon balm
Lettuce mix & Cress
Green garlic

Now that we're into late May, a lot of produce is popping up at the Farmers' Market. There were so many beautiful seedlings for sale, I couldn't resist purchasing 4 tomato plants.

So now comes the fun part- I'm tasked with finding out what to make with these beautiful veggies! My goals for tonight and tomorrow are the kohlrabi greens (right) and the swiss chard. I'm thinking some kind of simple recipe involving olive oil and green garlic. I looked at making this recipe for simple Swiss Chard, but in the end opted for the recipe below.

Roasted Swiss Chard with Feta 

  • 1 bunch rainbow chard 
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled


  • Preheat a pan on low heat w/ 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Toss the chard stems and onions in a bowl with 1 tablespoon olive oil. 
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add to frying pan.
  • Cook in the pan until the chard stems have softened and the onion is starting to brown on the corners, about 8 minutes. 
  • Toss in the chard leaves over the stem & onion mixture, then scatter the feta cheese over top.
  • Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until chard leaves are tender.
Serve and Enjoy!

Any favorite swiss chard recipe recommendations?
