Ingredients

  • 2 sheets puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 Pound Swiss chard, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup halved or roughly chopped unsalted cashews
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

On a floured cutting board, lay out the puff pastry and cut into 2 ½- to 3-inch squares and lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

In a frying pan, sauté the Swiss chard in a little olive oil. After about 2 minutes, add in the cashews. Season with salt and pepper to taste. When the chard is soft, dollop a spoonful of chard mix onto the center of each puff pastry square.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the puff pastry "puffs" and turns golden. Serve warm.

Swiss Chard Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Swiss Chard Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
