There was so much at this week's CSA. Eggplant, cucumbers, tomatoes (the first of the season), cabbage, swiss chard, red onions, fennel, summer squash, and parsley:
I was so excited to get home and dig in! The swiss chard was calling my name, but I didn't want to simply saute.
I decided to make a sauce/pesto of sorts. I sauteed the swiss chard a bit and blended it with olive oil and parmesan cheese. The photo is a bit blurry because the sauce was still hot and it kept fogging up my lens.
I used the sauce to give a little kick to Italian bread sticks.
They were pretty good, but could have used a bit more spice, maybe some hot pepper next time?
I ended up sautéing more swiss chard along with radicchio, and egg whites.
So so so easy to eat well during the summer!
2 more days until Friday! This weekend can't get here fast enough!!
