I think this sounds delicious, and I still have chard in my garden! Bookmarked.


Wow nice presentation and a new dish added to my recipe dairy!


A gorgeous dish indeed. I have some chard in the garden and will definitely try this with rice or quinoa (barley is no good on a gluten-free diet, alas) soon. Bellissima!

This is such a colourful dish Simona. I have seen rainbow chard at the market and would love to try these rolls.


Beautiful dish! I bet it tastes great!


Come già sai, adoro le verdure e questi involtini mi ispirano molto ...


My daughter always buys rainbow chard, and this I will forward to her...she makes it so delish, but your way is magnificent! Thank you for visiting my blog, and commenting.
Grazie per la ricetta!

Hi Simona! Boy do those look awesome! Love the sound of that filling! Great photos too.

This recipe looks so delicious. I want to try it for lunch. I think this is going to be a hit at home. Thanks for sharing.

Simona Carini

Thanks, Chriesi. Indeed, it tasted really good.

Ciao Milena. Sono sicura che con il tuo tocco artistico faresti degli involtini carinissimi. Spero di averti ispirato.

Thanks, Elisabeth.

Thanks, Lori Lynn. Very healthy too.


ehh ma qui si gioca facileee ;-)) con queste bietoline colorate ripiene è un piacere ancor prima di mettersi a tavola !!


The picture of the chard with its blood red veins is beautifully photographed and the little rolls a definite addition to my collection of yummy meals.

Simona Carini

Ciao Astro. Devo ammettere che ora le bietole con le coste bianche non le compro piu': mi piacciono troppo i colori.

Thank you so much, Nazarina, for your kind words.


This looks perfect. I love the idea of using the stalks instead of throwing them away. Chard is so versatile - I too love the color.


Gorgeous! I love stuffing vegetables and my chard all grew back - not rainbow, but still tasty!

Simona Carini

Thanks, Claudia. Indeed, chard can be used in so many ways. I am glad it is easy to find year round.

Hi Katie. I wish I had chard in my garden. I tried growing it one year, but the results were not very good, so I am sticking to kale, which does very well.


The colors and photos are beautiful, and this recipes sounds delicious!

Simona Carini

Thanks, Jeannette. I was definitely happy with the result.

Sweet Artichoke

Waow, I have never seen these rainbow Swiss chards! And I am an avid hunter for new kind of veggies! Will still try your recipe with regular ones... ;-)

Simona Carini

Hi Sweet Artichoke. You can certainly use regular Swiss chard. Based on other people's comments, I suspect rainbow chard is available only in the US, at least for now.


I am going to try to leave a comment again, using Mozilla instead of Google Chrome (yes, I filled all three fields, and even signed up with Typepad to try it that way).
I love, love, love your involtini. Cannot have enough recipes for chard. It is always pushed aside as a "contorno", but you made it into a star:)

Simona Carini

Hi Lana. Thank you so much for trying again. I am glad this time you were successful. Thanks for the kind words. I think it is so nice that card is available pretty much year round. You are totally right: in this dish it takes a well-deserved central place.
