Recipe: Green elbows

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

This is one of my favourite go-to recipes when the rest of the family is eating something I can't. Here it goes:

Cooked pasta of your choice (today I made a few handfuls of brown rice elbow noodles)
2 big swiss chard leaves
1/4 lemon
handful of grape tomatoes
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (I chose this one, but in the spicy variety)
4 TB hemp seeds
3 handfuls of mixed organic salad greens

Chop swiss chard leaves, sprinkle with lemon juice and heat gently in a frying pan. You want it to wilt-not boil.
Add the grape tomatoes and sauce once the greens have started wilting. Give it another minute or two of stirring.
Add in your cooked pasta and stir to heat.
Turn off the element and add in the handfuls of salad greens. Stir to warm (again, you want the whole thing to wilt- not cook- it should still be bright green and some leaves will still be crunchy).
Pour onto a plate and savour.

This rocks. :)
