Asian Style Rainbow Chard Wraps

I

 will be totally honest with you right now, I never liked raw carrots or cabbage in my salads. To me these vegetables are too tough when uncooked.

However, I changed my opinion recently when I tried these Asian Style Rainbow Chard Wraps. In this recipe it just works. And the best thing is – it is probably the most convenient way to consume your 5-a-day!

Healthy and delicious it is so summer 2017 dish!

Prep time:
Serves:
15 minutes
6 wraps

Ingredients:

Thin (Glass) Rice Noodles

6 Rainbow Swiss Chards

¼ of Red Cabbage Head

1 Large Carrot

1 Cucumber

1 Bell Pepper

1 Chili

3cm Ginger

70ml Rice Vinegar

30ml Water

½ tsp Sugar

Pinch of Salt

 

Method:

1. First of all, prepare the thin rice noodles following the manufacturer instructions. In my case I just soaked them in boiling hot water for 3 minutes and drained.

2. Next take the Swiss chard leaves and cut off the stems. In a large pan bring some water to the boil, place the leaves in there and simmer for 20-30 sec.

3. Remove the leaves, gently rinse them with cold water and dry thoroughly with paper towels, set aside.

4. Julienne the carrots and cabbage (use the mandoline slicer).

5. Cut the cucumber in half, scrape the seeds out and julienne. Do the same with bell pepper.

6. Now when all ingredients are cut and ready, take Swiss chard leaf, lay on the kitchen top, neatly place all of the sliced ingredients and rice noodles. Fold in the edges and roll tightly. Repeat with the rest of the leaves.

7. Serve wraps with sweet and sour dressing – mix of water, finely chopped ginger, chili vinegar salt and sugar.

Swiss Chard

is my newest discovery. I only got to know this green fellow a year ago and never stopped eating it since.

You can add it into your stir-fry or use it instead of spinach to bring something different to your table.

Oh and one more interesting fact is that Swiss chard is related to beetroot however its root is inedible. What a shame…
