Stuffed Swiss Chart

Araxy Aykanian


Stuffed Swiss Chard is old traditional Armenian recipe passed though to me by my mother in low.
Since i moved to south of Orange County in California , I have been planting swiss Chart in my back yard, and it's growing very wild, now i am raising organic Swiss Chart and have been making this dish more often and inviting my family and friends for dinner.
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we enjoy it.
Bon appetite
