    For Sauce:
    Coconut oil
    28 oz can stewed or whole tomatoes, low sodium
    1 lb ground bison
    1/3 c red wine
    Fresh sage
    Fresh basil

    For Rolls:
    Coconut oil
    6 good-sized Rainbow or swiss chard leaves, washed with stems trimmed
    1 bunch of asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 leek, white part only, chopped
    1 small onion, chopped
    4-5 medium cremini mushrooms, sliced
    2 oz goat cheese
    3 oz mozzarella, chopped or shredded


Preheat oven to 350.

In a large saute pan or skillet, heat 1 tbsp coconut oil over medium heat. Add garlic, cook 1-2 minutes. Add tomatoes, break apart whole tomatoes if you didn't get the crushed ones, and bring to a simmer. Add 1 oz goat cheese, 1/3 c red wine, and fresh basil and sage. Bring to simmer until goat cheese is distributed throughout, remove and set aside.

In a different pan, heat 1 tbsp coconut oil on medium heat. Add onion and leak, cook 2-3 minutes. Add mushrooms, cook until slightly soft. Add asparagus, cook 5 minutes or until bright green and tender. Remove from heat, add 1 oz goat cheese and 2 oz mozzarella. Stir until cheese starts to melt, cover, and set aside.

Wash and dry chard leaves. Trim stems. Spoon 1/6 of vegetable mixture into each leaf and roll up. In a 9x13 (or smaller) pan, spoon a layer of meat sauce into bottom. Set rolls on top of meat sauce, cover rolls in remaining sauce. Sprinkle 1 oz mozzarella on top. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
