As the weather turns cooler, I like adding spice to my meals. Nothing warms me up like a little curry. Last night I cooked up some red Swiss chard with some garam masala and tofu. Chard is one of my favorite leafy greens, which is why it's one of my must haves for October.
This Indian-spiced chard makes a great main dish, or leave out the tofu for a side dish. I served it with toasted whole wheat pita — my easy replacement for naan — or you could serve it over rice and cauliflower with turmeric as a side. It's a tasty meal and even better as leftovers.
Check out the recipe.
