As I mentioned in an earlier post, risotto is on my “bucket list” of foods to make someday. My husband wanted me to help because he takes my posts seriously but I had to remind him that some day means a weekend or upon retirement! In my defense, I was pretty exhausted last night.
So my husband was on his own as he whipped up this delicious risotto with swiss chard. I don’t feel like writing out an entire recipe but the steps are similar to the risotto with taleggio and bacon, only you sauté the swiss chard first.
If you haven’t made swiss chard, or bietole, one of the staples of your diet, you should give it a try. It’s a dark leafy green vegetable that has its own unique rich flavor and is also full of health benefits. Swiss chard is an excellent source for vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, manganese, potassium, iron, vitamin E, dietary fiber, and much more.
