Gratin of Chard and New Potatoes

Postby suffolk » July 16th, 2018, 3:44 pm

We had all the ingredients (except the olives so I used more tomato) so I've made this for supper today

Has anyone else tried it?

No, but it looks very tasty.
My chard didn’t come to anything, but I have loads of Pak Choi, which is now nearly as big as chard...do you think that would work? Think I’ll give it a go anyway....I’ll report back.

Don't see why it wouldn't work ... look forward to hearing about it.

That sounds lovely , a bit more piquant than the usual creamy gratin

It is very tasty indeed ... second helpings were taken by both of us, and although there is still a little left I've a feeling it won't last until lunchtime tomorrow :chops: :oops:

Swiss chard is my favourite green vegetable and I'm sure I'll be cooking this again before long.

I grow two lots a year ... one lot sowed in the spring, and I'll sow the next lot where the mange tout are, when they're finished. I'll harvest that in the autumn, it'll stand over winter and as soon as the first signs of spring arrive it'll start to grow and I'll harvest it until the spring sowing is ready. Give or take a week or so :)
