FFwD: Chard-stuffed pork roast
This was supposed to be chard-stuffed pork roast, but it didn't. Chard was not available in my store. So I stood in front of the vegetables and thought about it. I wanted to make this pork roast what other vegetable could I use? And then my eye saw the fresh spinach. Not quite the same, but I thought it was a pretty good substitute. And the result. We loved it. We truly did. Not even the parents, but also our childeren. I've made four roast so we all had our own.
And not only did it taste good. It didn't took much work either.
In about 15 minutes everything was in the oven to bake.
My baking time was a bit longer than was said in Dorie's recipe, about 10 minutes more, but it was moist and tender.
We ate it with mashed potatoes and white beans in tomatosauce.
I didn't make the last one myself, but I've seen on our cooking channel (yes I'm a little addicted to that one) how I can make it. That certainly will become a project of mine.
Hopefully with my own tomatoes from my own garden.
My garden is going well. The roses are planted and so are all the fruitbushes that should have been planted. But I've got no pictures because the weather around here is so bad.
When the rain is over and the sun is shiny I will give it a shot.
Not that you will see quite a lot, because the roses are just above the ground.
I can't wait until they bloom.
We aren't supposed to give the recipe, but a similar recipe (with kale instead of chard) can be found at:

Have a nice weekend and a picture of the end result:
