• Cumin Coconut Chard

    Cumin Coconut Chard | stupideasypaleo.comI love alliteration, hence my name of this post. Sometimes, I get really sick of steamed or wet-sauteed greens, so I decided to mix things up. The market I frequent always has fresh greens from a local organic farm, and my favorite lately has been Swiss chard. Cumin is smoky and aromatic and pairs really well with the toasted coconut flakes. Simple, easy, 5-minute side dish.

    • Pepper to taste
    • Coconut oil or fat of choice

    Instructions

    1. Slice the Swiss chard into ribbons (mine were about ½” wide).
    2. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add a spoonful of your fat of choice.
    3. Saute the chard and coconut flakes until the chard is slightly wilted but not soggy and the coconut flakes are a bit browned, about 3-4 minutes.
    4. Sprinkle with cumin and pepper, to taste. I don’t add extra salt because the chard itself is a bit salty.
