Swiss chard is a powerhouse plant known for its seemingly magical ability to grow and propagate. Eaten raw (which we do not advise), chard has a characteristic bitterness, so you’ll want to cook the leaves before eating. Adding cream to Swiss chard is the perfect way to tease out the oxalic acids (the cause of the bitter taste) and invite a delicious creaminess to this unique and lovely dish to enjoy on its own or with your favourite protein.

Step 1

In a saucepan bring rice and broth to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for about 20 minutes or until broth is absorbed and rice is tender. Fluff with fork and stir in soy sauce; set aside

Step 2

In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic for about 3 minutes or until softened. Add Swiss chard and ginger, cook, stirring for about 3 minutes or until wilted. Add cream, salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in corn kernels and heat through.  

Step 3

Scrape rice out into a casserole dish or platter and top with chard and corn mixture to serve.
