Swiss Chard and Chickpeas

Servings: 2 servings
2 tablespoons olive oil
Swiss chard
1/4 cup green garlic (Sub 1/4 c green onions and 1 clove of garlic)
1/2 cup garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
1 teaspoons thyme, crushed with your fingers
1/4 cup feta
1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa, optional – I precook this and freeze

In a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add in the green garlic (or green onions and garlic).  Stir in garbanzo beans and let cook until they begin to brown slightly (4-5 minutes.)  From there stir in swiss chard, thyme, and remaining tablespoon of olive oil.  Let chard cook saute until it cooks down.  Remove from heat and toss with brown rice and feta.
