Sauteed Rainbow Chard with Maple Syrup

I had a great time last night experimenting with a new vegetable – rainbow chard.

Here’s what you’ll need:

One bunch of rainbow chard, separated into leaves and chopped stems

1T. olive oil

1 cup of onion, chopped

1T. maple syrup

Dash of sea salt

Combine chopped onion and the ends of the colorful chard stems with olive oil and sauté on medium heat until the onions are soft.

Add the roughly chopped leafy parts of the chard to the onion mixture with a teaspoon of sea salt. It may look like a lot at first but it wilts down. Cook for 3 minutes until the leaves have softened but are still bright in color. Add one tablespoon of maple syrup and cook for 30 seconds more. Transfer to a plate and serve with a side of your favorite protein. Enjoy!
