Chard or Blette is the vegetable that keeps on giving. When planted rather than pull from the earth to harvest, it can be cut back to the roots as it will continue to grow, providing you with an endless source of greens.
Seen mostly in mediterranean countries, it's the equivalent of Spinach yet with more structure and less water content. It's a good source of vitamins and minerals and has a high dietary fibre content and most importantly, is delicious.
