How can you resist the brightness of the Yellow, Deep Red against the Dark Green... Nature is sure taking care of us in an amazing beautiful way!! This Japanese inspired healthy side dish will blow your mind! So, scroll down to check out how YOU can make this too!
- 1 Swiss Chard (whatever color you prefer)
- 3 Spoons of Roasted Sesame Dressing (You can buy this in any Asian Supermarket. but the recipe to make this sauce easily yourself will be up on the blog very soon)
- Japanese chili pepper mix
- Smoked black sesame seeds
- A pan filled with boiling hot water
Cut off the bottom part so you'll have all the stems loose. Now wash them carefully and get rid of all the dirt. Cut the Swiss Chard in beautiful even pieces. When the water is boiling hot let them cook for 2 minutes with the lid on.
Now drain the water, and let the veggies cool off in a 'bath' of Icewater (yes, you got that right.. that's Hello Kitty Ice + Water, If you don't have Hello Kitty Icecubes you can't make this dish..just sayin lol) When you feel that the veggies are totally cooled off, use your hands to squeeze out of all the access waterr and shape them nicely on to plate.
Mix the Sesame dressing with a pinch of Japanese chili mix (in my case, 4 pinches, the chili addict I am :O). Now, drizzle it nicely over the veggies and sprinkle the black sesame seeds on top, et voila!
