A feast from the mıddle east

Take your tastebuds on a feasting tour of the Middle East with Tony Kitous’ recipes

Stuffed Swiss chard with spiced rice and vegetables

I have fond memories of Swiss chard from when I was little and my grandmother would cook it in a stew with olive oil and garlic for my grandad. It was his favourite dish. This recipe for stuffing the leaves with rice is one I enjoyed with an Iraqi family. The seasoning of Lebanese seven-spice mix and an additional touch of mint is, I think, what makes this taste so delicious. The cooking time of different brands and types of rice varies, so check that they’re done (because you really don’t want overcooked soggy parcels) by picking out a parcel and unwrapping it a little. Take a grain of rice and bite it – if it’s just tender, they’re ready. If you taste a grain and it seems to be almost there, you can turn off the heat and leave the parcels in the pan with the lid on for 5-10 minutes to finish cooking.
