What to do with all that wonderful Swiss Chard???
Our CSA shares have included Chard the last two weeks and I know there is more to come. Many folks are not familiar with this colorful leafy veggie, so I would like to offer some ideas. You can also check my previous post... Cheezy Garlicky Swiss Chard
Kickin' Chipotle Swiss Chard Roll Ups
Oh my, these are wonderfully delicious.
Early this morning I thought I'd make some kind of sunflower seed cheese. So this afternoon
I decided that I would create one...how hard could it be?????
This cheeses is so good I will be making it again.
Chipotle Sunflower Seed Cheese
In a glass mason jar:
1 c. raw sunflower seeds
cover with water and allow them to soak for several hours
drain, rinse, drain again
place in a Vita-Mix or food processor
3 cloves of garlic
Himalayan salt to taste
Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipolte~no measurements..
my lid fell off as I was shaking it
add enough lemon juice to blend
Blend until smooth
This Cheese will make anything taste good, so if you are not fond of the strong flavor of Chard
make the cheese hot and roll it up!

Chipotle Seed Cheese
chopped up stems of the chard leaves (waste nothing)
zuchinni and carrot noodles (leftovers from Pasta Marinara)
spread your cheese on the wide end of the chard leaf add toppings of your choice and roll up!!
Use whatever toppings you and your family prefer...be creative
You can also make a wrap with romaine leaves, collards, cabbage or whatever leafy green you have
The Cheese is good for a dip for veggies or crackers
Get your greens on...eat them raw as often as possible...they are nutritional powerhouses!
