Here’s what I will demo today at the Garlic Festival… http://www.clevelandgarlicfestival.org/
Swiss Chard Cakes
Serves 4 as an appetizer
2 bunches of swiss chard
1/4 cup minced garlic
3 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 cup shredded pecorino romano or parmigiano reggiano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive oil for frying
Wash the swiss chard very well. Rough chop the swish chard and boil them for 5 minutes. Drain and let cool. Squeeze as much moisture out as possible. Chop the chard some more and combine with rest of ingredients besides the EVOO (that is for frying the cakes).
Make into cakes about 2 inches in diameter. Fry in a thin layer of EVOO for about 4 minutes per side on medium high heat. Drain on paper towel and serve. Can be served room temp.
