Sometimes when you buy chard, especially Swiss chard which has thick stalks, you may have more stalks than you need. This dish is a perfect way to use them up.


  • 500 g chard stalks, washed and trimmed
  • Tahini Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon nigel


Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the chard stalks, put a lid on and wait for the water to come back to the boil. Cook for 30 seconds more and check to see if the stalks are tender. (Thicker stalks may require more time.) Drain in a colander and run under cold water for a short while to cool. Leave to drain. Slice stalks roughly 4 cm long and 2cm thick. Toss with the tahin
