Chard roulade

Running out of ideas on what to do with your mountain of chard? Here’s a quick and easy but unusual recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Plenty of chard (up to 500g ish). You may also use spinach.
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g pack of cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Optional extras:
Add garlic and different herbs to the mix for more distinctive flavours. Thyme, Oregano, Nutmeg and Cloves are all good options. Or add chives to the cream cheese.

Method:

  1. Chop or tear your chard (or spinach) and steam or boil it till just soft.
  2. Squeeze out excess water and work it a bit to make a sort of chard mush.
  3. Leave to cool down, then add salt and pepper and 2 beaten eggs.
  4. Spread the mixture on to a GREASED rectangular baking tray
  5. Bake at 180′ until it JUST starts to brown on top.
  6. Leave to cool a bit and remove from the tray onto a flat surface
  7. Spread on the cream cheese and roll up like a Swiss roll
  8. Serve sliced

Bon appetite!
