Swiss Chard with Tahini Dressing Recipe
Swiss Chard – The easiest, healthiest and one of the most satisfying green vegetables on the planet. It’s beautifully juicy, sweeter than kale, super healthy, satisfying and filling indeed.
Packed full with goodness, I feel very virtuous when I’ve got Swiss Chard on the menu, knowing that I am feeding the family a nutrient-dense and super healthy meal.
This is a super quick recipe you can get onto the dinner table in no time. And literally only a few steps are required.
Start with washing the leaves thoroughly. Fill the sink with water and place the leave into the water. Then one buy one rinse each leaf to ensure that there is no dirt residue on them. Cut off and trim the stems of the Swiss chard, chop the leaves and garlic ready for sautéing.
Only 4 ingredients and it’s done! In a blender or food processor add the tahini (well stirred), water, lemon juice and garlic and whiz until well combined. Pour into a bowl and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
HINT: This dressing makes a great dip too! Serve it with a colourful plate of crudités and you have another super healthy, creamy, delicious snack.
