Swiss Chard + Potato Gratin

This Thanksgiving, try adding more plant based dishes to your menu. Done the right way, they can be incredibly satisfying and will leave you feeling lighter and nourished.

Swiss chard is one of the highest ranked vegetables in terms of its nutrient levels! It’s an excellent source of phytonutrients, which show in the plant’s vibrant green and purple leaves and provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Swiss chard is also rich in vitamins A, C and K, along with magnesium and calcium.

Although picky eaters may be wary of swiss chard, they will be lured in by the beautiful bright layers of this dish along with the melted cheese on top!
