Chick Peas and Swiss Chard (Serves 2)

Personally, I would add the tomatoes last, as they really don't need to be cooked for this recipe

1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced (use your garlic scapes!)
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small tomato, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 cup rinsed canned chick-peas
1/2 pound Swiss chard, stems discarded and leaves coarsely chopped
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  1. Cook onion and garlic in oil in a large nonstick skillet over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened.
  2. Add tomato and chick-peas and cook, stirring, 5 minutes.
  3. Add Swiss chard and cook, covered, until wilted, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper

Girl Meets dirt uses the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit, unrefined organic cane sugar, a squeeze of organic lemon, and classically prepares the preserves by hand in seasoned copper pans in their Orcas Island Kitchen! They don't use commercial pectin either, instead they rely on time and concentration for set.
