This Swiss chard recipe highlights the stems, not the leaves. When using Swiss chard in leaf-based recipes, I find myself chucking the stems, but for no reason other than I rarely have a use for them, except maybe when juicing. Swiss chard is incredibly nutritious, and its stems are no exception. The following Steamed Swiss Chard Recipe with Mediterranean Paste accents the wholesomeness of Swiss chard stems by pairing it with a fragrant and strong paste based in goat cheese and olives. Each ingredient is perfectly complemented by the others. Enjoy!
