Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Tomatoes

Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Tomatoes

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.  Enjoy!
