super healthy as well, so I decided to buy a bunch. It's been sitting in my fridge since then, in perfect condition, but I knew that very soon it would start wilting and be icky, and that would be a terrible waste of some perfectly good chard, so decided to cook it up for lunch today.
I had come across a recipe for Swiss chard spring rolls in a spicy peanut sauce and it sounded terrific, but I didn't want to make spring rolls- too much work- right now I'm in a very lazy mood when it comes to food prep, but I figured I'd just use the filling on its own as a side dish, with some changes to keep it more frugal.
Definitely delicious- I'll be making this one again!
1-2 tablespoons oil
1 large onion
1 bunch swiss chard
1/3 cup water
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey or sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon salt
Sprinkle red pepper flakes
1. Chop onions and saute in oil until becoming golden.
2. Chop up the stems of the Swiss chard and add them to the onions. Cook until the start to soften.
3. Chop up the leaves of the chard and add them to the pot. Cover (optional), and cook, mixing occasionally, until all wilted.
4. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well, and cook a few more minutes.
