Spiraled Meat Loaf with Swiss Chard and Spinach from Amanda at Iron Rich Food. I am definitely planning to make this! What I most love about Amanda’s meat loaf is the creativity. This is meatloaf with the wow-factor. From a nutritional stand-point, the greens are steamed before getting rolled up in the loaf — ensuring that oxalic acid is washed away. The finished meatloaf looks gorgeous. Who wouldn’t be proud to make such a dish? The recipe looks easy enough in the recipe steps thanks to great pictures of all the steps. Great recipe, Amanda. Thank you for adding it to the chard round-up!
Swish Chard Quiche from Hannah at Mountain Musings. Hannah’s beautiful and simple quiche uses pre-steamed chard for good nutrition. I also love that this dish centers around two other foods usually found in abundance this time of year — cream, cheese, and eggs. With eggs and creamy, sweet milk coming out our ears (or our farmer’s ears), this quiche makes lovely use of those other seasonal foods, too. The best part of Hannah’s recipe post was her Granny’s recommendation to freeze chard to make this all year.
If you’re on GAPS or dairy-free, check out Starlene’s chard and onion quiche which uses a coconut four crust and is, of course, GAPS-friendly. Starlene blogs at GAPS Diet Journey and offers a great free download to newsletter subscribers — a list of approved GAPS foods. In the comments, Holly and Starlene discuss steaming the chard first. They’re one step ahead and ready for you. Great step-by-step photos in this post, too. Thank you, Starlene!
Honestly, I could just keep going… I loved all of your recipes! Go check out the rest of the chard round-up because all the recipes are worth being featured.
