No need to discard the stalky bits of Swiss Chard; when in season, they impart a surprisingly sweet note to this garlicky favorite.
  • 2 bunches organic Swiss Chard- red or rainbow
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic, smashed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  1. Wash chard, then remove stems.
  2. Chop stems; shred leaves.
  3. Heat oil in skillet over medium.
  4. Add garlic and stems and cook, stirring, until softened; roughly five minutes.
  5. Turn off heat.
  6. Add tomatoes and chard leaves.
  7. Cover and let sit five minutes (just enough time to sear some wild fish or grass fed fillet).
  8. Serve with your favorite protein.
