Chard, Carrots and Soba Noodles

Ingredients:

Garlic - peel and slice
Carrots - wash and slice
Chard - rainbow was fresh at the Mount Shasta Farmers Market- chop
Olive Oil for sauteing
Soba Noodles - cook as directed
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

Prep vegetables. Parboiled the carrots in a medium pot of boiling salted water.  In a frying pan saute the garlic in oil until soft, then add greens. Using a slotted spoon I scoop the carrots from the boiling water into pan with the greens. Cook the Soba noodles in the same water you cooked the carrots. Drain and toss into greens. Season to taste.

Tips and Substitutes:

Soba noodles are Japanese noodles that are made from buckwheat flour. The thickness of the noodles is easily comparable to that of spaghetti. They are available in most markets...check the international section.

This is just a 'put together meal' where you can use whatever you have on hand or looks good at the Farmers Market or vegetable section of your local grocery store. This would be good with onions, mushrooms and chicken.

For an Asian flavor substitute Thai Chili and Tamari or soy sauce for salt and pepper.
