My BIG FAT Grain Free Life: Swiss Chard with White Wine and Tomato

Swiss Chard with White Wine and Tomato

If you're really interested in what's going on in my life right now, see my post from the other day.  Still in waiting mode, but we know the Lord has everything under control. 

Thank you all for kind and encouraging words, and most importantly, praying for us.

And now, moving on to food...

My  BFF and I were traveling to some important destination (ROAD TRIP!) and visited a Whole Foods that served up something along the lines of this recipe.  It was so delicious that when I got home, I tried to recreate it.

According to Rebecca Katz, author of "The Cancer Fighting Kitchen", Swiss Chard is "anti-inflammatory and loaded with beta-carotene, fiber and vitamins A and C."  

For my daughter and me, personally, it is a soft green that is easy to digest. 

Swiss Chard with White Wine and Tomato

1 bunch of Swiss Chard (either green, rainbow or red variety)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon ghee
1/4 cup white wine
1 ripe tomato, diced (or use 4 roasted tomatoes)
1 clove garlic, minced
water, if needed
salt and pepper 

Wash chard and chop.  Heat large saute pan on medium to medium-high heat.  Once heated, add olive oil and ghee.  Add onion and saute until soft and getting brown.  Add tomato and cover.  Steam for a few minutes to draw juice out of tomato.

Remove pan from heat and add garlic.  Stir for about 30 seconds.  Add white wine and stir.  Add chard and cover saute pan.  Allow to steam, stirring occasionally.  If it's getting a bit dry, add some water.

Chard is done when tender but still maintaining color.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy!  (Of course you can always throw some Pecorino Romano on top.)
