chard/silverbeet with fenugreek | easy, delicious greens

img_2204-2I’m one of those weirdos that really, really digs vegetables. Yup, I pick vegetables over meat most days and don’t consider a meal complete unless there is a good amount of veggies on my plate. Potatoes don’t count!

But i do discriminate: I have a love-hate relationship with broccoli and I’m super fussy about Brussels sprouts, kale and spinach. They gotta be cooked in just the right way. But chard, I have nothing but oodles of love for. It’s mild, it cooks super quick, needs minimal prep and always goes with everything.

If you have 15 minutes, you can make this dish!

Quick lesson in Aussie speak: we don’t say ‘chard’ here, we say silverbeet. Unless of course it’s rainbow chard which we call rainbow chard. The word chard does come up, but we say ‘chards’, like, “I’ll have the chards [say shards]”  in which case, we are talking about chardonnay. Which could go well with silverbeet, I don’t know. Anyway, you get all of that? Goodo!

Let’s cook this!
