This is one of my favorite lunch recipes, this flavor mixture is addicting! I usually eat a whole bunch of chard for lunch using this recipe, sometimes with a side of whole wheat bread or rice. It’s quick and easy to make too, great for busy people! This is a unique spice blend that most people either love or hate… I LOVE IT and I hope you do too!
- 1 -2 bunches of chard (leaves AND stems) ,washed and chopped – I use red, green or rainbow… ALL GOOD! I use 1 bunch but you may want to use 2 the first time, or half the spices (to make sure you like it first!)
- Water/broth for sautéing
- 1-3 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Water/broth sauté the garlic gently until golden. Add the chard, paprika, cumin, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
