Rainbow Chard ReplacementI'm a more than a week behind on the menu, and am having problems sourcing the Rainbow Chard that is in week 2. (I have looked in 3 nearby supermarkets.)
What can I use as a replacement for this??

Re: Rainbow Chard ReplacementPrincessDi, try substituting it with spinach or kale.

Re: Rainbow Chard ReplacementI couldn't find chard anywhere either except for some baby chard in lettuce mixture at coles. I agree with Yeo for substitute. I believe that chard is like the leaves on beetroot but wouldn't use these. Maybe the experts can tell us more about chard and what is its worth and where to purchase this vegetable.

Re: Rainbow Chard ReplacementHi Princessdi,

Rainbow chard is the same at silver beet. If you are still struggling to find it, you can use spinach.
