Sauteed Rainbow Swiss Chard- Yum

We have Rainbow Swiss chard in our garden right now, as well as green onions ( I think other folks may call them "spring onions") .

My girls have always loved Rainbow Swiss Chard because of their beautiful colors. I've always loved the flavor as well as knowing how much wonderful nutrition is packed in each little leaf.
This is "spicy oregano". It's great to use as a little extra flavor in cooking. My kids don't complain that they are spicy at all.


A picture of one of our garden plots, you can see the muscadine and grape arbors around the back perimeter.

The green onions about to be harvested for supper.

 Our poor snow peas. We can't get more than a few before they get picked. My kids eat them as fast as they can grow....

My super cute helper. I love that he has a smudge of dirt on his face....

The rainbow chard and onions harvested for supper.
So below you will see the Rainbow swiss chard, a tiny bit of they spicy oregano and the green onions. Wash and chop those into very small pieces.

Chop up about 2-3 garlic cloves and get them sautee'ing in a hot skillet. I use olive oil, you could use flavored olive oil for a different flavor.

When they have cooked for about 1 minute, add the chard, oregano and onions. Add a pinch of salt and pepper .  Sautee for about 4-5 minutes, then serve warm. I'm telling you my kids love this. It's like a really nice fancy little treat. The colors are the most fun.
I have another recipe for the Rainbow Swiss Chard I hope to get up in the next day or two. Since that is in season for most folks, it would be great to get a few more ideas on how to best cook them up.
Until Next time- Happy Homesteading!!!
