With the cooler temperature comes my craving for warm salads. I’m a big salad fan however it gets harder for me to nosh on some chilly greens when it’s cold outside so I simply turn to sautéing my greens for my salads.

Just a little bit of coconut oil goes a long way when sautéing greens. You don’t want them too soggy or too crispy still. The perfect medium is when they’re wilted but still have a bit of a bite to them. 

The sweet burst from the warm cranberries pairs so well with the savory taste of the onion and chard mixture.

Ingredients

  • 4 large red chard leaves cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 slice of onion, quartered
  • 1/2 cup whole cranberries
  • Dried Rosemary
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds

Instructions

  1. In a small pan, pour the pumpkin seeds and turn the heat on low. Let the pumpkin seeds lightly toast, shaking the pan every so often. Pumpkin seeds should be lightly browned.
  2. Pour pumpkin seeds into a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil on low heat.
  4. Once pan is warm, add the onion and sprinkle with dried rosemary, black pepper and sea salt.
  5. After the onion begins to caramelize, add the chard pieces.
  6. While chard is cooking, in a separate pan pour the cranberries and turn the heat on very low. This is to help warm up the cranberries so they can become “juicy”.
  7. Cook the chard until it is tender but not all the leaves are completely wilted.
  8. Pour in the cranberries, stir.
  9. Serve immediately and sprinkle the pumpkin seeds on top.
