Another Tuesday down, another CSA delivery in my fridge.
This weeks mix included:
Red leaf lettuce
The farmer threw in the leaf lettuce which was sweet. It looks like it’s getting a little wilty so we’ll have to use it right away. Another week I’m happy with the produce we received.
For dinner I knew just what I was going to make with swiss chard, and it was inspired by my aunt Arlene.
Reasons to eat swiss chard: It is also a good source of Thiamin, Folate and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.
What a mouthful! Guess it’s time to eat a mouthful of it.
Back to the food. There is a name for this meal but it’s escaped my memory.
Basically I sauted the swiss chard stalks, 1 apple and chicken sausage and 1 stalk of garlic greens in some olive oil until it became tender, then I added the swiss chard leaves. This cooked for about 1 minute then I cracked 4 eggs ontop of the swiss chard mixture and sprinkled a bit of sea salt on them. Next I covered the pan with foil and ’steamed’ the eggs until the yellow was just getting hard (we don’t like runny yolks in our house).
I had a roll on the side and found this meal so comforting and delicious. The swiss chard kepts its wonderful flavor and the apple and chicken sausage brought a little sweetness to the dish. I’m excited to have leftovers for the next day. Definately a meal I will make again!
