Roasted Swiss Chard with Feta
Swiss chard is another one of those stunning vegetables. It's undeniably the most alluring of the greens. I love this recipe. The Swiss chard and feta flavors compliment each other so perfectly. This recipe uses both the leafy greens and bright crunchy stems of the chard. This is my favorite way to serve Swiss chard as a side. For more than 3 people, I'd double this recipe.
