Chard/Mangold and Tofu Gyoza

Posted on

To make this, I took about half a package of (previously frozen) tofu and squeezed out the water before crumbling it and mixing it with two heaping spoonfuls of gochujang (Korean chilli paste). I took a handful of chard leaves and stems, chopped them roughly and blanched them, then squeezed the water out of them, too, before dicing them. There are also three diced spring onions in the mix.

After mixing the filling, I put it in ready-made wrappers. The wrappers had egg in them, which is why this dish isn’t vegan, but it would be easy to make or buy ones without egg, as I sealed them with water. I fried them on each side in a bit of oil, then added some water and a lid and let them steam until the water was gone. I served them with soy sauce and chilli oil, and turned out even tastier than I expected!

Lentil and Chard/Mangold Soup

Posted on

The base of this soup consists of red lentils cooked until they dissolve and cashew cream. Chard/mangold adds some greens, and citrus juice (I used lemon as I didn’t have limes) and cilantro perk it up and keep it from being too heavy. I enjoyed this soup.

I was inspired by a recipe for torta pasqualina, but I used only one egg.

Chard/Mangold Chèvre Gyoza

I used this recipe. I liked the idea of this recipe – perfect for using up some goat cheese I had left – but ended up finding the cheese cloying. If you like deep-fried cheese wontons, you might enjoy this version.

Chard/Mangold, Onion and Goat Cheese Tart

Posted on

I used a prepared puff pastry as the base. The first layer is red onions which were carmelized slowly in oil, along with two sprigs of thyme. The chard stems are lightly par-boiled and the leaves were cooked to wilt. Honey goat cheese and pan-fried sweet pepper tops the dish.
