Hey, who charded?*


Ok, its so ridiculously hot in Chicago that:

  • We just got back from a walk where I ran through an open fire hydrant. Yes, we’re classy like that.
  • The Huz broke down and turned on the air conditioning.
  • I can’t stand the additional heat generated by the grill.

So, we went semi-raw for dinner tonight: Swiss chard wraps!

Swiss chard wraps, serves 2

-6 swiss chard leaves, stems cut
-2 cups carrot, shredded
-1 bell pepper, very thinly sliced
-1 avocado, sliced

Lay out your shard. If the middle vein of your chard is really thick, you might think about cutting it out to make it easier to eat. Ours were fairly thin (as you can see from the picture above), so I left them in.

Add about 2-3 T of hummus to each wrap, then about 1/3 cup shredded carrot, a few slices of bell pepper, and a few slices avocado (plus any other veggies you like!).

Wrap ’em up and seal with a toothpick!


*Yes, I went there. This blog post title is for B. Hopefully she’s reading or else I just lost all my female readers with the world’s first Swiss chard/fart joke for nothing.
