This steak looked so good I cooked it a lot less then usual, about a total of one minute on each side, the rested for 10 minutes while I braised the chicory in the same pan. I added some veg stock to the same pan, then the quartered chicory and put on a lid to let cook until tender but still crunchy and most of the liquid was gone.

Scary box arrived today containing chard, green cabbage (scarily big head!), huge carrots that look more like turnips shape-wise, potatoes, swedes and onions.
I figured the chard would probably perish first so I cut out the white bits and chopped those finely and cut the green leaves into chunks.
In a saucepan with a generous amount of olive oil, I sauteed four  gloves of garlic, a small onion, a chunk of ginger and the chard whites (all finely chopped) until everything softened. Add a small cup of cream, season with salt and pepper and bubble for a bit. Stir in the chard leaves, turn the heat down, cover and let sit  for a few minutes. They really won't need long, just warm through and wilt a bit, you still want some bite.

I orignally wanted to make rice with this but had to realise I had run out so I made some mash with a couple of potatoes and one of the swedes.
It was lovely indeed and looked like this:

I didn't have any parsley, otherwise I would have added some green to the mash.
