Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Just Another Meatless Monday Spicy Swiss Chard


Just Another Meatless Monday Spicy Swiss Chard

Hey What's For Dinner

Yeah for spring greens. Completely part of the big diet and completely available NOW. After going through my swiss chard recipe repertoire including poached eggs in swiss chard, hot swiss chard salad, tortellini toss and deciding I wanted a bit of with our lunch so I made up this little hot swiss chard dish. It was well received and happily inhaled by my husband and I. I will be making this again, perhaps with some marinated and grilled tofu on top? I saw this great recipe for Bulgogi Tofu on Kim Chee Fried Rice featured on Parsimonia but it was really to be found at Sauce Magazine. I  think the Bulgogi Tofu would top off the Spicy Swiss Chard very well.

Spicy Swiss Chard

1 market bunch of swiss chard--about a large handful of stalks--washed
4-6 large white mushrooms-cleaned
2 TBSP water
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon spicy mustard-homemade or Guldens or Dijon of some sort
pinch of red pepper flakes
sea salt

heat a large frying pan over medium high heat
chop the stems in to about 1 inch pieces
add to the warm pan
set aside the greens for a bit
slice the mushrooms and add them to the pan
stir around and add the water to the pan
reduce heat and cook until the stems and mushrooms are tender
coarsely chop the greens and add them to the pan
stir until wilted
then stir in the soy sauce, ginger, mustard and the pepper flakes
stir to coat divide between two plates add a pinch of salt to the top and serve hot

Peace and Love--
