Chard With Rice and Bratwurst

 From Rising River Farm

  • 1 bunch chard- chopped (entire leaf and the upper end of stalks
  • 1 small onion or medium shallot-chopped fine
  • 1 clove garlic-minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup uncooked rice of your choice. (I like basmati, but a heartier rice is good too.)
  • 4 bratwursts
  • Optional: feta, grated cheddar, toasted sunflower seeds
  1. Start cooking the rice.
  2. Chop all the veggies
  3. When rice is almost done, start cooking the brats either on the grill, in the oven or in a frying pan. (I like to grill them, personally.)
  4. If you are a multi-tasker, you can also start sautéing the onions and garlic until translucent.
  5.  Add chard in batches and cook until the color changes to a vibrant bright green-just a few minutes. Try not to overcook. Toss with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with brats, either whole on the side, or cut up and added to the mix.
  7.  Sprinkle the cheese of your choice and/or and seeds over the top.

 

NOTE: If you are a vegetarian, toasted salted nuts or pan-fried tofu can take the place of the brats.
