Sauteeing dark leafy greens is my favorite way to consume large amounts of these powerhouse foods. Rainbow chard contains an impressive amount of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that your body needs. Enjoy them warm as a side or add to a grain bowl. V, GF.
1 bunch rainbow chard, leaves and stems cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (or splashes of water as needed if avoiding oil)
2 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
pinch of salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 lemon wedges
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil & garlic, sauteeing for 30-60 seconds.
Stir in the chard and a pinch of salt until evenly coated with the oil/garlic. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes until all the leaves wilt, stirring frequently.
Add to a serving platter with lemon wedges.
Best enjoyed immediately or store in an airtight container for 2 days.
