Ingredients

  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt, plus more for cooking the pasta
  • 2 Cups gluten-free penne pasta
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 large bunch rainbow Swiss chard, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/3 Cup pine nuts
  • 2 Teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 scallions, chopped finely
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the Swiss chard and cook, tossing until tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain off excess liquid. Add the pine nuts, lemon juice, lemon zest, scallions, sea salt, and pepper. Drain the pasta and gently toss with Swiss chard mixture. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve warm.

Swiss Chard Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Swiss Chard Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
