Cheesey chard

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Rice (brown basmati is nice)
½ medium Onion, cut in chunks
2 tablespoons Olive oil
\N pinch Black pepper, fresh ground
2 quarts Chard, fresh, cut in 2\" pcs.
6 ounces Montery jack or mild white cheddar
1 can Baby corn
2 cups Squash vine tips, peeled cut in 1\" pieces
\N \N Soy sauce or tamari


Cook the rice with approp. amount of water for the rice; I use a rice cooker and equal amounts of rice and water; twice the water for standard covered pot and brown rice.

Wash and drain the chard, remove and discard stems, and cut leaves in 2 inch squares.

While the rice is cooking (about 8 minutes before it is done), saute the onion, and squash vine if used, in the olive oil with a grind or two of black pepper. Add the drained baby corn, if used, and cover to heat through.

Add the chard just when the rice is done cooking. Turn off the heat.

Add the hot rice and grate the cheese on top. Mix quickly so the cheese melts, but not so much so that everything sticks together.

Serve with soy sauce, if desired.
