Comments

  1. This was delicious. The lemon juice and coconut milk added a really nice flavor. I would definitely recommend using the stems too since it gave it a nice crunch. Even my husband who does not like greens, loved it. So easy too!

  2. Anyone ever tired this with a different type of green rather than swiss chard? Its just too bitter for my taste.
