Rainbow Chard

Rainbow chard.blog

We spent 18 months in the Pacific Northwest in 2005 and 2006, and one of the great joys of the late summer and fall was the abundance of gorgeous produce. Rainbow chard was something I had never heard of before, but as the years have flown by, a greater variety of fruits and vegetables have appeared out here in the desert.

I was stunned by how very beautiful this bunch was as I washed it up for steaming. I didn’t do anything to the picture to enhance those incredible colors. The colors even held up under the onslaught of the steam, albeit a bit faded.

    Isn’t it gorgeous!! And tasty, too. We first tried it last year and decided to grow it. It did very well here in Massachusetts as it’s more of a cool weather crop. I spent an hour one day just photographing it in the garden.

      Chard is one of those vegetables that it is easy to overlook because it is so “fluffy” with the big leaves. I would have thought it would be more tough and chewy, but it cooks up beautifully, and is so tasty to boot.

    Now you are talking my favorite vegetable! Each color has a distinctive but subtle flavor – once just cooked the yellow chard and discovered it has a smooth almost-buttery flavor. Chard should be known as “the vegetable of the gods” in my estimation!

    We live in a world that gives us beauty, whether a sunset sky, an ocean wave or the fresh produce that comes from the earth. Lovely capture.πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

  5. Great photo! πŸ™‚

    I recently baked steamed red Swiss chard with some eggs and cheeses. It was very tasty, but the interesting thing was that after baking, the red color disappeared altogether… quite a mystery…

    That’s really like a painting from Picasso. Wonderful. I love chard, too, specially with gorgonzola sauce.
