water, or more as needed to cover
Swiss chard, stems and tough ribs removed, leaves cut into 1/2-inch-wide ribbons
salt to taste
ground black pepper
I enjoyed making this dish. Next time I need to use more Swiss Chard because the bunch I got had a lot of leaves that looked like they were starting to spoil. I also put more lemon in for the fish, but that is just a personal preference. I will be making this again!
Would make this again; it was good.
Tried cooking this meal tonight. It was actually very tasty, and is a very nutritious meal. The Quinoa is labeled a "super food" and Swiss Chard is one of the most nutritious vegetables. Add the benefits of Salmon and garlic, and you have a winner. It also tastes very good. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the presentation. It doesn't really look very attractive, but it's worth it for the taste and quality of the meal.
It was ok. I toasted the quinoa for the first time, and it took away the "dirt" flavor - definitely recommend doing this.
This was delicious, easy, and reasonably quick to make....and so darn healthy. This is a keeper recipe. I made one small addition of a bay leaf to the wine broth and that was it.
Very bland. Felt like it was a waste of such nutritous ingredients.
