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
2 tbsp. fresh parsley
splash of chicken stock
1 package of wheat couscous
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!

Citing Ty Herndon as inspiration yesterday... Billy Gillman filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. He is also gay.
Billy claims the fact that he is gay has kept him from signing a major record deal. If that's true, that is sad and...
Ty Herndon has come out of the closet! Read the entire story from People Magazine HERE.
Here's a couple of my favorite Ty Herndon songs from the 90's:
Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
