Rainbow Chard

From: Dagele Brothers Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Florida, NY)

Taste the rainbow! Cooked chard is a great stand-in for spinach. The stems can be steamed or grilled like asparagus. While Swiss Chard is naturally bitter, cooking mellows the flavor. Unless the stems are tender, remove them and just prepare the leaves. You can prepare chard in a jiffy by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip. More info

Black Beansblack bean

FromVermont Bean Crafters (Certified Organic in Waitsfield, Vermont)

Parboiled certified organic black beans from Vermont Bean Crafters. Joe, Founder and Owner of Vermont Bean Crafters, soaks the beans overnight which begins an enzymatic process to release compounds just waiting to be energized. The net result of the soaking process makes the beans more digestible than if they were not soaked. Pretty cool, right? If yours are a teensy bit hard, just add some water and boil to desired tenderness.
