Ingredients

  • 1 package Hodgson Mill Ancient Grain Medley, Roasted Garlic Peppercorn flavor
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • pinch red pepper flakes (I used 1/4 teaspoon, feel free to add more for extra heat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch rainbow swiss chard, stems thinly sliced and leaves thinly sliced into strips.
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts, chopped

Instructions

  1. Prepare the swiss chard. For easiest prep, remove the tough ends of the stems and discard. Thinly slice the remaining stems and set aside. Then, stack the leaves and roll tightly, like you are rolling a burrito. Then, starting at one end, thinly slice into ribbons. Keep the stems and leaves separate.
  2. Prepare the Ancient Grain Medley packet according to package directions.
  3. While the ancient grains are cooking, heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes and salt and cook until garlic is just softened, taking care not to burn, about 1 minute.
  5. Add the swiss chard stems and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add in the leaves and cook an additional 5 minutes until leaves are just wilted. Stir in the walnuts and remove from heat. Season to taste, adding more salt/pepper, if desired.
  6. Add in the contents of the ancient grain medley to the swiss chard pan and stir to combine. Serve immediately.
