Sauteed Rainbow Chard

Leafy greens is a must in our diet once a day and this is one of the easiest ways of eating greens. I cook this atleast twice a week ...... from start to finish takes 10 minutes to cook, uses only 5 ingredients and surprisingly is very very tasty.

Organic Rainbow Chard - 1 bunch
Olive Oil - 1/2 tbsp
Black Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida / Hing - a pinch
Turmeric - a pinch
Red Chilli Flakes - 1/4 tsp (optional)

Wash the chard well and chop finely along with the stems.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add mustard seeds. Once the seeds start crackling, add asafoetida, turmeric and chilli flakes(if using).

Immediately add the chopped chard and salt. Mix well and saute for a minute.

Lower the heat, cover the skillet tightly with a lid and cook for around 4 minutes.

Remove the lid, increase the flame and saute for a minute more. Serve hot.
