Cloudy rainy days are the worst for food photography! And now with my new job, I have been trying to cook and photograph after work some days. Last month when I was making this dish, it rained every single day. The sun never came out. I had the intention to cook on Tuesday then Wednesday and then Thursday came by and it was still cloudy. I thought I would give it a try but as I expected the pictures weren’t great.
So a week later I was at it again! This time maybe a little too ambitious, I tried to cook two things at once and photograph two dishes from after work until the sun set. Since there was sun they came out much better, however, it was definitely getting close by the time I finished this recipe.
Swiss Chard is really like any leafy green in terms of taste. I think it goes well in the quinoa bowl, but you can also use any other green you like. But if/when you have Swiss chard leftover from a recipe it’ easy to find another use for it! It can be added to lots of different rice/quinoa bowl combination.
If you have some, give this one a try!
