IMG_2577

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of swiss chard
  • 2 cups of cooked quinoa-red or white
  • 3/4 cup of black beans-(Note-using dried beans vs. canned is better for health but takes more time)
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro-chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tbsp of honey mustard
  • 2 whole tomatoes-diced
  • 1 small onion-chopped
  • 1 tsp of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds.

Directions:

For the Swiss Chard Wraps: Place leaves in 1 pot of boiling water for 5 minutes until they turn a bright green color.  Once they are done-set aside and let them cool down.

Mix the cooked quinoa, and the remaining ingredients in a bowl.  Set aside in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.  Finally, place 2 spoonfuls of the mixture in the swiss chard and roll them up into a wrap formation.  Enjoy!
