Swiss Chard with Carrots and Onions

Submitted by: ADAPTABLE_ELLEN

Introduction

Quick and easy way to get your veggies all cooked in a single pan. I use agave instead of honey for less impact on blood sugar. If you don't have broth, use bouillon or water.

  • Incredible!

    This is delicious! Taking ideas from other reviewers, I added the stems with nions, and garbanzo beans with carrots. I used regular carrots and sliced them thin as I didn't have baby carrots. I waited about 5 minutes after adding the carrots to add the broth. Served over couscous. - 2/17/12

  • I loved this! My kids, not so much :( too much vinegar I think. Will try again with less vinegar and see if it makes a difference for the kids. - 8/6/13

  • This is delicious! I am a vegetarian, so to make this an entree, I added 7 oz canned garbanzo beans well-drained with the onions and otherwise prepared as specified in the recipe. Served it with couscous tonight. I'll use penne pasta next time and have this in place of a traditional pasta sauce. - 10/1/10
