You couldn’t want more healthful ingredients for a side dish than high-fiber brown rice and nutrient-rich Swiss chard. But if you cook the greens with oil, you can get a fattening one.
Here, onions, shallots and garlic are sauteed in nonfat, nonstick cooking spray, then the chard is added and steamed. I also steam the brown rice. There’s no need to watch it and no danger of scorching.
After tossing together the rice and chard, sprinkle each serving with a few cashews for crunch. But use just a few--they’re high in calories and fat.
