Yesterday afternoon I couldn’t decide what I wanted to make for dinner. I knew I wanted roasted beets because that has been my new favorite thing lately and some other meat besides chicken (cause I had that the last 3 days for dinner).
So, I made my way to the HEB-ie (pronounced heebie) and Sprouts to see what I could find.

As I looked through the produce, grabbed my beets, red and yellow peppers (.88 cents a piece baby!) and avocado, I kept thinking about Stephanie’s “Lettuce Wrap” post and how it looked and sounded good.  Except, I knew I didn’t want to use iceberg lettuce, well cause you may as well eat air – you’ll get close to the same amount of nutrients-practically, ZERO.  And that’s when Swiss Chard popped into my head.  I’ve always wanted to make Swiss Chard…so…I got some ground turkey and beef to finish off the dinner fixings!

Here is the recipe in words and not-so-good looking pictures in case you ever want to create your own version.

*Cook the ground meat (of your choice) on the stove.  I don’t really get too crazy with my sauces and spices cause I figure, the less ingredients and extra salt, the better.  Seasoned ours with sea salt, pepper, Janak’s seasoning, poured a little Organic Worschestire sauce and a little red wine.
*Meanwhile, spray organic olive oil Pam on a baking sheet. Toss veggies in olive oil, sprankle some sea salt and pepper. Throw on the sheet and roast at 400 degrees for about 15 or so minutes.
*I also made some guacamole (avocado, salsa, lime juice, garlic, pepper, sea salt) to put in the Chard leaf (minus the stem).
*Steam the Chard for less than a minute, and when everything is finished stuff the Chard leaf, wrap, and eat!
