Swiss Chard Stems Baked with Parmesan

 

If you’ve ever booked Swiss chard and wondered what could be done with those fabulous looking stems, look no further. Here’s a recipe adapted from Kalyn’s Kitchen.

 

Ingredients:

 

Swiss chard stems, cut in 1 ½ inch pieces

Pepper

Parmesan cheese

 

How to Make It:

 

 

Preheat your oven to 400 F.

 

The stems are quite hard, so they need to be softened before baking them with the parmesan. Place them in a pot with boiling water and boil for about 5-6 minutes.

 

Drain the water and place the stems on a non-stick or greased baking surface. Then sprinkle with pepper and Parmesan or other hard cheese and bake in a 400 F oven for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

 

Serve warm and eat as an appetizer or as an accompaniment with your meal.
