Swiss Chard & Bacon Hand Pies

Swiss Chard & Bacon Hand Pies

{Editor's Note: Trying to sneak in an abundance of leafy greens? Here's one way to turn them into a delicious, portable lunch, dinner, or snack that's packed with chard but flavored, deliciously, with bacon. It proves the rule that good things come in small packages. --Genie]

Swiss Chard & Bacon Turnovers

You could easily bake this chard and bacon recipe into one large pie, but the individual hand pies are really fun and make a great grab and go snack, appetizer, or breakfast. Plus, for anyone out there who struggles to get family members to eat greens, the cutesy format doesn’t hurt (nor does the bacon). If you want to make these vegetarian, I suggest omitting the bacon and adding Parmesan or gruyere cheese instead.

[Editor's Note: In some parts of the country, the weather's beyond hot right now, and that means there are plenty of nights when turning on any appliance—even the toaster—is simply too much. That's when these delicious wraps will come in handy. They're fun to eat, packed with the protein punch of hummus, and absolutely cooling, especially if eaten with a cold glass of iced tea on a back porch. --Genie]   Read more >

Spaghetti with Garlic, Chard, & Pecorino-Romano Cheese from Kalyn's Kitchen

I'm excited to share another of my favorite meatless meals, and I especially love to make this combination of chewy whole wheat spaghetti with garlic, chard, and cheese in the fall when I still can get chard from my garden. The chard (also called swiss chard or silverbeet) is sauteed in oil that's been seasoned with minced garlic, and then it's folded into hot whole wheat spaghetti and sprinkled with flavorful Pecorino-Romano cheese.   Read more >
