|Swiss Chard patties|
The Swiss Chard in the garden my dad and I share was ready to cut and cook this past week. It marked our first harvest from out shared community garden plot. Here is a recipe for Swiss Chard patties that is so good. My family loves it.
Swiss Chard is low in calories and fats- although not so much when you prepare it this way. This veggie member of the beet family is loaded with vitamins C and K. Studies show that Vitamin K helps to reverse neuronal damage in the brain, and so it is being used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Chard also contains omega-3 fatty acids, B-complex vitamins and is a rich source of minerals. In short, you should eat this stuff, even if it looks like fried frogs. It's delicious, I swear.
A bunch of Swiss Chard leaves chopped
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1- Fry chopped Swiss Chard in olive oil until tender
2- mix cooked Swiss Chard with bread crumbs, cheese and egg in large bowl.
3- form patties
4- fry patties in olive oil until golden brown.
servings depends on how big your harvest is. Four plants yielded about 12 patties.
