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.




Swiss chard stems, cut in 1 ½ inch pieces


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.
