Kid Chef Swiss Chard Pesto

IMG_3275

Kids can make a quick and easy snack for parties or afterschool with a garden harvest of organic Swiss chard and a fresh organic baguette. Swiss chard is rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins and is not native to Switzerland but to Greece. Kids can wash several leaves of organic Swiss chard and cut the center stalk out of the leaf. Put 2 cups of chopped leaves in a blender with 2 cloves garlic, 2 tbsp organic walnuts, ¼ cup organic extra virgin olive oil, 1 tsp fresh organic lemon juice, and ¼ tsp sea salt and blend until smooth. Cut slices of baguette, cover with the Swiss chard pesto, and serve.
