Quick Tips: Scallions,Radishes, Beet Tops, Chard



Have scallions and radishes?
A friend in Maine (who has an amazing garden and two cute kids) gave me the idea for this quick and tasty breakfast.
Pick up some cream cheese
(I like whipped. Less calories and easier to spread.)
Stir in chopped scallions.

Spread on toasted english muffin, bagel, or toast.
Top with thin slices of radishes.
Devour happily, knowing you've just had some veggies first thing in the morning.

Have Beet Tops?

David always looks forward to fresh beet tops!
Wash, trim stems and steam.
Serve with a twist of lemon or sprinkling of parmesan.


Thinking of Tossing the Swiss Chard Stems?
People often throw out the large stems, thinking they'll be too bitter or tough to eat. Not so!
Heat up a pan with a generous, but shallow coating of olive or vegetable oil.
Trim ends of stems.

Dredge in egg, then coat with a combination of breadcrumbs or panko, parsley, and parmesan.

Fry until crispy and golden brown.

Place on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up oil.

Serve with slice of lemon or nothing at all.

Enjoy!
