Rainbow Chard Rolls

Stella Star Ingredient: Quick Pickled Carrots

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches rainbow chard, tough ends cut off and discarded
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted salted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro and mint leaves, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Quick pickled carrots (Stella Star Ingredient):
  • 1 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into long matchsticks

Steps

  1. Prepare carrots. Add vinegar, sugar and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add carrots to a heat-proof bowl, and pour vinegar mixture over top. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  3. Remove large thick stalks at end of chard leaves. Blanch chard leaves in batches in boiling water for 10-15 seconds until just pliable. Remove from water and cool to room temperature. Pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  4. Whisk together the vinegar, sesame oil, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce and honey in a medium bowl. Season with a pinch of salt. Fold in shredded chicken, peanuts, green onions and cilantro, and mix until combined.
  5. To assemble: Lay out a chard leaf on a clean work surface. Layer a second leaf to cover any holes. Add chicken mixture, quick pickled carrots, then avocado and herbs. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Roll up like a burrito. Slice in half on the bias to serve.
