Swiss Chard Gratin
A puny of bitter in fashion and total of texture, Swiss chard is flexible and lends itself to delicate combinations…As another choice to spinach [in gratin], the chard adds a tartness and texture that spinach lacks. The ribs are very flavorful and withhold their shape in soups, sautes and gratins. — Peter KempThis recipe by Peter Kemp on the origin seemed in The Chicago Tribune.
