We picked up the ingredients for these at the Charlottetown Farmers Market yesterday morning.  We enjoyed them immensely while watching Cooking With Stella last evening.  The snack was superior to the movie, so I’m recommending one more than the other.

Swiss Chard Envelopes


  • 4 large swiss chard leaves
  • 1 large tomato cut into quarter inch slices
  • sea salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 4 thick slices cumin gouda
  • 1 tsp minced garlic


Plunge chard leaves in a large pot of boiling water for about 12 to 15 seconds.  Immediately plunge the leaves in a bowl of ice water, leave for one minute then blot dry.

One at a time, place leaves face down.

In centre, place one tomato slice, sprinkle with salt and pepper, top with cheese and minced garlic.

Wrap leaf around the filling.

Spray the envelopes with nonstick spray and place in a preheated oven or on an oiled and preheated grill.  Allow to cook for 5 minutes.  Serve warm.
