Kaleidoscope Chard with Balela

How cool is the word “kaleidoscope”? Like a toy kaleidoscope, kaleidoscope chard is a rainbow of colors. These greens offer an excellent range of flavors and colors from orange, pink, and yellow to softer greens, whites and bold red. 

It’s visually appealing, for sure, and packed with vitamins A & C, calcium, iron, fiber, and folic acid. By easily combining it with Balela, you’ll get an extra boost of deliciousness and protein.

This recipe is inspired by Trader Joe’s:

Other add-on options: Grilled chicken, tofu, italian sausage or chicken sausage! I’ve also discovered that kaleidoscope chard is surprisingly satisfying on pizza… maybe that’s my next recipe? Enjoy!
