I had two bunches of chard and 3 roasted beets I needed to use up, so here's what I did. Five ingredients (three of them being pantry staples), one pan, and simple prep: it doesn't get easier. And bonus, this is really delicious. Forgive my bad photography skills, they'll get better. :)
Chard and Beets with Walnuts and Carmelized Onions
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
3 medium beets, roasted and diced
2 bunches of green chard, chopped
Heat oil in pan over medium heat, then add onion and sautee until soft and browned. Add chard and a splash of water, cover and let steam until the chard softens. Uncover and add beets, stir and continue cooking until everything is warmed through and any remaining water evaporates. Stir in walnuts and serve with freshly ground salt and pepper.
