Sautéing spring onions brings out their already-sweet flavor and we topped these with toasted almonds and a hint of thyme to elevate this side dish.

Easy Swiss Chard

Looking for an easy way to get more greens in your diet? Try this simple sautéed Swiss chard recipe.

In the spectrum of greens, Swiss chard lies between spinach and kale—not as tender as spinach, not as tough as kale. But like spinach, you can easily sauté it in some olive oil in just a few minutes.

The stems can be tough. You can either remove them and discard (or boil and toss with butter), if some of the stems are tender, just sauté them first before adding the leaves, to give them more cooking time.

By the way, not only is chard packed with vitamins (vitamins K, A, and C), it also is anti-inflammatory and helps the body manage blood sugar. It’s in the same family as beets, spinach, and quinoa. Even more reasons to eat chard!

For this easy sauté we are cooking the chard in just a little olive oil with some thinly sliced garlic and red pepper flakes. We’re also including coriander seeds which taste fantastic with the chard. If you don’t have coriander, you can skip it, but if you do have it it will make this simple swiss chard dish truly special.

SPIRALIZED BEET SALAD WITH WALNUTS & CHEESE

This is a beautiful and eye-catching Spiralized Beet Salad with Walnuts & Cheese salad. Goat cheese and roast beets are absolutely delicious together but if you’re not a fan of goat cheese, try feta! In this case, however, I’d suggest swapping the balsamic vinaigrette for a greek salad dressing. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy it, the rich red and green tones of this salad will satisfy the taste buds of your eyes (if your eyes have taste buds – haha). You’ll see what I mean when you make this salad.

Quinoa Asparagus and Feta Salad

"A perfect spring, summer, or anytime salad. Loaded with protein and fiber, but so delicious you would never guess how healthy it is! If you are making the salad ahead of time, add the dressing just before serving to keep the asparagus an attractive bright green. Leftovers keep well for a couple of days."
