SWISS CHARD STIR FRY

This is one of my very favorite recipes, healthy, easy and satisfying! We grow swiss chard in our small garden as it does not take up too much room and is so nutritious!

4 cups of swiss chard leaves chopped  (stems removed)


swiss chard1one onion chopped

3 cloves of garlic chopped

olive oil or coconut oil to coat the bottom of the cooking pan

1/4 cup kalamata olives chopped

1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped.

Cooked whole wheat pasta

In a large frying pan  or wok, saute onion in oil 3-4 minutes, add the garlic and saute 2-3 minutes more. Add the chard leaves, it will seem like a lot but they will cook down. Stir all to coat the leaves. Continue stirring until leaves have wilted. Add olives and tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Optional, add crushed red pepper, and/or cherry tomatoes from the garden.

Serve over warm pasta! At our house this serves 2 people!

Enjoy!!
