Quinoa Stuffed Chard Rolls

HealthyVegan's picture
I've used chard to make a vegetarian swiss chard recipe, because it is much easier to wrap than cabbage, and looks so pretty. Healthy vegetarian recipes with quinoa are always nice, and it does really well here with the asian flavors. This will work well with any grain though, so if you don't have quinoa you should still give it a try!
  Quinoa 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Tamari/Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Toasted sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Ginger 1 Inch, grated and juiced
  Onion 1 , diced
  Carrots 2 , grated
  Zucchini 2 , grated
  Broccoli 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), diced
  Fresh parsley/Fresh cilantro 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), minced (Or 1 Handful)
  Sesame seeds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chard leaves 4 Large (Collards Or Other Green)

1.Rinse the quinoa with water, drain, add 2 cups water for every 1 cup quinoa. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt in the water, bring it to a boil for a minute, then turn down to low and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Quinoa is fully cooked when you see the swirl of the grains, with a translucent center, and it is fluffy. Do not stir the quinoa while it is cooking.
2.Mix the rest of the ingredients, aside from the chard leaves, together in a large bowl. Spoon the mixture onto the chard leaves, wrap them up and put them in the oven, covered, at about 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. Serve them with an extra drizzle of tamari if you wish. I hope you enjoy this swiss chard recipe, the latest of my healthy vegetarian recipes.
