Chard is one of the rare leafy green veggies that are found in non-Asian cooking (the others being kale, which I don’t really like and spinach.) As some people might know, I’m a huge fan of leafy green veggies because that was what I grew up with. There are so many Asian green leafy veggies! There is a joke to this too. When Jason and I first started dating and going to HMart together, I’d be buying all these leafy green Asian veggies and Jason would ask me what each of them were. My reply? “Asian veggies!”
