Flowers are blooming! Herbs and vegetables freshly picked! It's all at Augustine's Farm on King Street!

Rainbow Chard with Garlic and Olive Oil

1 bunch rainbow chard
2 cloves of garlic chopped
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt

To prepare the rainbow chard, you first must clean it well. Since you eat both the stalks and the leaves, wash the entire leaf  and stem well, in cold water. Cut off the very bottom of the stem and discard.  Dry each leaf well because it will be going into hot oil. Chop the stalks into 1/2 inch pieces and coarsely chop the chard leaves.

Put 4 tbs of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the chopped garlic.
Lightly sauté the garlic until golden. Add the chard stalks and sauté
for 3-5 minutes (until tender).
Add the well dried chard leaves into the skillet and cook for 4 minutes or until tender. Finish by adding sea salt to taste.

Save the date - Sept. 15th, 12 noon-2:00pm, and follow Patch for details. We'll be roasting corn and offering our "Farm Sampling Surprise."

Kathy, a perfect recipe for the planned cookbook! One of my favorites is heirloom tomatoes with videlia onions, olive oil, basil, salt and pepper. Just wonderful and the tomatoes make it.
