Swiss chard baked with Gorgonzola

For the uninitiated, Swiss chard is a delicious leafy vegetable that you can enjoy almost all winter. They are good simply boiled, and they are very often enjoyed in that way. But sometimes during a long winter we can become a little weary of vegetables always cooked in the same way and crave something stronger, sweeter or just different. And so we suggest the option - open to all green leafy vegetables - of creating savoury pies, or making soups, or coating with cheeses and baking. The following proposal is the latter, invigorating Swiss chard thanks to the taste and flavour of the king of cheeses, Gorgonzola. Try this recipe with us and discover Swiss chard in a completely new light.

Preparation

Wash and clean the Swiss chard well. Cook them in boiling water for 15 minutes and then neatly arrange them in a baking dish. Break up the gorgonzola and then scatter over and between the leaves. Add the cream and a sprinkling of pepper and bake for 30 minutes at 180°C.

Tips
When cleaning the Swiss chard we advise you to strip the green leafy portion from the harder white stalks. Add the stalks to the boiling water first, and then after a few minutes the leaves. In this way you will get a more evenly cooked result.
Trivia
Swiss chard provides significant amount of vitamins, in particular the pro-vitamin A, iron and magnesium. It is therefore excellent for health, particularly that of children.
