Tip Top Chard

This is a super-simple easy spring dish using onion tops, chive tops and fresh chard. (And in case you want to know more about chard, here are some previously published fall recipes.)

Ingredients:
Bunch of chard
1 or 2 large onion tops, or a bunch of small tops
Chives with blossoms
Olive oil
Orange Juice
Tamari

Cut the stems of the chard and then slice into half-inch pieces. Then slice your onion tops into rings about the same size. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the onion tops and chard stems.

Then roll the chard stems like a cigar and slice into half-inch, or inch wide slices. Add to the pan after the stems and onions cook for 2-5 minutes. When the leaves cook down (this happens fast) add a splash of orange juice and a dash of tamari (or soy sauce). Add pepper to taste. Top with chive blossoms for a festive plate. You can eat them. Some people like them, some don’t!

Serve over rice and enjoy!
