Swiss Chard Roll Ups

A big thank you to Tricia Royall, my dear hairdresser who gave me this recipe!! You rock Tricia!! (Her phone at her salon is: 480-481-0665)

1 cup of rice
2 large carrot, peeled and chopped fine
1 medium beet, peeled and chopped fine
1/3 c sweet onion, minced
1 big bunch red swiss chard
olive oil
soy sauce or tamari

Cook rice - bring 2 cups of water to boil, turn to simmer, dump rice in and cover. Let simmer 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the stems out of the chard to leave only large portions of leaf. Rinse, and pat dry. You need big sections of leaf to roll up with no hard stems in them.

When rice has only 5 minutes left, heat olive oil to coat bottom of pan and saute carrot, beets, and onions with a few splashes of soy sauce or tamari. When rice is done, mix all together with rice. Put a few spoonfuls of the rice veggie mix on each segment of chard leaf and roll up. Eat plain or with extra soy sauce. You may have extra rice which is great on its own.
