  • While closely related to spinach and beets, Chard, commonly referred to as Swiss Chard, takes on a more pungent and robust flavor. Chard recipe packs a huge amount of nutrition with calcium, iron, folic acid, vitamins A and C, and fiber. Chard is commonly available in many different varieties and colors, including rainbow we’ve got, and can easily be substituted in a recipe for spinach.

    Leek and Swiss Chard Tart
    Bon Appetit!

    1 sheet frozen puff pastry (half of 17.3-ounce package), thawed
    2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
    3 large leeks (white and pale green parts only), coarsely chopped
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 bunch Swiss chard, ribs removed, leaves chopped (about 2 1/2 cups)
    1 1/4 cups whipping cream (I used whole milk)
    3 large eggs
    2 large egg yolks
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    Pinch of ground nutmeg
    Roll out pastry on floured work surface to 12-inch square. Transfer to 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish. Trim overhang to 1 inch. Fold under; crimp edges. Cover; chill.
    Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add leeks and thyme. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover; cook until leeks are very tender but not brown, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Add chard; saute until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cool.
    Position rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 425°F. Whisk cream and next 5 ingredients in large bowl. Mix in cooled leek mixture. Pour filling into crust.
    Bake tart 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake until filling is puffed and just set in center, about 15 minutes longer (this took my oven about 10 minutes longer). Transfer to rack; cool 10 minutes.
