Swiss chard sushi !?!?

Not much is growing in the garden, but the swiss chard is growing like crrrrazy. I love greens but I was never really exposed to them as a kid, and this was a great opportunity to do that. Chard sushi! I cooked up a pot of rice, chopped up some carrots and cucumbers, added a little rice vinegar & soy sauce- and Voila! A delicious snack and some pretty fresh exposure to chard. Chard is high in anti-oxidants & vitamins A,K, & C. We plucked them fresh out of the ground and blanched them for 1 minute in boiling water. This loosened them up and made them easy to roll. Most students really enjoyed this snack and it was a lot of fun to be eating garden food again.
