Both the leaves and the stalk are edible, and has exceptional health promoting nutrients. Swiss Chard is a great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and B Vitamins. Wrap seasoned fish fillets in blanched Swiss chard leaves and then bake. Sauté blanched Swiss chard in olive oil with sliced garlic, then add currants or golden raisins and toasted pine nuts.
