I love cooking greens! May I suggest pulling out the stems, tossing with olive oil and canned tomatoes, and braising over medium heat until completely wilted? Tomates can be substituted with a squeeze of lemon, too.

I'm willing to try chard in my mac and cheese (hey, anything with cheese can't be too bad). Can you suggest how much to buy and steam for a box of Annie's mac & cheese (or a single-serving pouch)? Thanks!

Hi Cindy, that's a great question that I don't know the answer to! I'll send a quick note to Diana at the farm and see if she has any insight. ~ J.Noelle

Hi Cindy! Here is Diana's response to your question:

"Hmmmm, how much chard. Well I like a lot and I am cooking for one, so I usually steam about 5 large leaves-stems and all. If you have a bag of young chard I would steam about 3 handfuls. I don't season them, I want full chard flavor. However, a little salt and pepper is a nice addition at the end. Hope that helps out and that they love it like I do.
