This colorful stir fry comes courtesy of the New York Times. The list of ingredients in stir-fry recipes can look long, even daunting. But the actual cooking goes very quickly, so it’s important to have everything prepped and within reach of your wok. Read through the recipe a couple of times before you begin cooking, because once you start, you won’t have time to refer to it. Serves 4. (more…)

This recipe is an alternative to the “traditional” sautéed Swiss chard with garlic. Depending on whether you want to use the chard stems as well in the recipe (you can cut them up finely, or dice them), you may need about a quarter to half a cup of chicken stock. Start with ¼ cup and add more as needed to get the chard wilted, before adding the tomatoes and lemon juice. Serves 4 as a side dish.
