Weeknight Quick Dish: Stuffed Chard Leaves

During the week we can't make elaborate meals. I usually down most of the leftovers for lunch, but occasionally the kids are left with leftovers on Monday night. What does one do with leftover lentil salad and quinoa salad? Mix together, wrap in steamed chard leaves, top with tomato sauce and cheese if desired, bake at 400 degrees until the cheese is melty and serve. You can fill with meat, beans, chili, rice...your imagination can fill in the rest.

Step one. Steam chard leaves in microwave or stovetop until tender. Cut off stems and reserve for something else. Place two leaves overlapping.

Step two. Place a quarter to half cup of filling in the middle.

Step three. Wrap up like a burrito.

Step four. Stack in a baking dish. Top as desired and bake at 400 degrees until hot.
