Tips & Notes

  1. I had a plethora of rainbow chard in my garden, so I was looking for a recipe where I could substitute chard in. This is the perfect recipe to put in not only turnip greens but kale or chard. Absolutely delicious. I didn’t bother cutting to chiffonade style and did a wider cut which was fine. it was a huge hit and paired it with trout with a mustard rosemary and thyme breadcrumb crust. Perfect meal!
