Red Tomatoes Red Chard Read Recipe

The chard has been glorious since spring and continues strong through the warm weather. Our tomato crop has been bumper, too, and the onions haven't been half bad either. So in honor of all (and because we like garbanzo beans in anything), a recipe we found on

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup garbanzo beans, drained
salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch red Swiss chard, rinsed and chopped
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 lemon, juiced

1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Stir in shallot and green onions; cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft and fragrant. Stir in garbanzo beans, and season with salt and pepper; heat through. Place chard in pan, and cook until wilted. Add tomato slices, squeeze lemon juice over greens, and heat through. Plate, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
