Swiss Chard wraps

Such a delicate mix of flavours. A delightful twist to your typical BBQed veggies.

9-10 Swiss chard leaves, at least 9 inches
1 lg. tomato, sliced and cut in half
1/2 c. Goat cheese, grated
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. onion flakes
Salt and pepper

Steam Swiss chard for a few minutes (blanch). Do not overcook. Open leaves and brush on olive oil lightly. Put tomato slice in center of leaf – top with pinch onion – salt and pepper and one tablespoon cheese. Fold leaf around tomato – this will hold together well.

Put on grill or BBQ until hot – can turn once. Works best if you use a 2 sided grill that holds food in place. This can also be cooked in oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes on a cookie sheet.
