What do you do with Rainbow Chard?

Rainbow chard!  I've never ate it, BUT it showed up in my Full Circle Farms box.  So once again, this home cook was inspired.  



Here's what I did!  

Lemon, Garlic Rainbow Chard Wheat Couscous 

1 bunch rainbow chard
3 cloves garlic
1 lemon
1/2 onion
2 tbsp. fresh parsley 
splash of chicken stock 
1 package of wheat couscous
olive oil 
salt and pepper

First remove leaves from chard, and chop the stems. 

Saute onion and stems in olive oil about 5 minutes.  Then add garlic.  Add leaves and stems of rainbow chard and a splash of chicken stock.  Let the chard soften and go limp.  Once soft, add 1/2 fresh lemon juice. 

Isn't rainbow chard pretty in the pan? 


Make the coucous according to package directions.  I do not use all of the seasonings packet, because it's loaded with salt.  Rather than water, I use chicken stock to boil the couscous.  Plus, I like to saute a little onion, garlic, and red pepper before adding the chicken stock and a little buttter.  

Once coucous is done, add the rainbow chard, the other 1/2 fresh lemon juice, fresh parsley, and I LOVE to add some fresh grated parmesian cheese on top!  

I served this along with roasted boneless chicken breasts that I coated with a little apple butter!  



Nom nom nommy!  You are getting your green veggies, and they are so good for you!
