Sauteed Swiss Chard with Tomatoes and Bacon

Swiss Chard is one of my favorite cooked greens. Check out this recipe of Swiss Chard with tomatoes and bacon. You can eat this as a side dish or it's great as an omelet filling.

1 bunch rainbow chard, leaves and stems separated and chopped
3 strips Whole30 compliant bacon, chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
sea salt
black pepper

Place the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until the bacon is crisp. Remove the bacon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Increase the heat to medium high, then add the onion and chopped chard stalks to the skillet. Cook until tender.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Toss in the cherry tomatoes and sauté until blistered.

Finally add the chard leaves and a pinch of sea salt. Cook until the leaves are wilted and tender.

Mix in the bacon bits and add black pepper to taste. Enjoy!
