Rainbow Chard & White Beans

This week my CSA box contained a vibrant bunch of rainbow chard.  Rainbow chard is similar to Swiss chard the only difference being the color of the stems varies in shades of orange, red and yellow hence the name Rainbow Chard.  


Chard is a highly nutritious leafy green veggie that contain unique phytonutrients that have antioxidant, detoxification and anti-inflammatory properties.  You can read a more detailed explanation about all the benefits that involve a lot of 15 letter words here

Usually when I get chard of any nature I sautee it but last night I was starving and wanted to make it a bit more hearty, so I added beans.  This whole dish didn’t take me more than 15 mins to make and it was a delicious compliment to the grilled pork chops we had.

  1. You can use any variety of spices that you would like. I chose to use turmeric and ginger because I enjoy the benefits of turmeric and wanted those flavors to pair with the pork chops we made.

As I noted in the recipe card above, you can use any spice combinations that you would like. I chose to use turmeric and ginger because I love the benefits of incorporating them into my diet. If you don’t have turmeric or would prefer not to use it, this would also taste good as an Italian flavored side dish. Just sub the spices I used for parsley and oregano!
