Garden Greens For Dinner

Bacon is not just for breakfast. Tonight I had a hankering for some leafy greens sautéed in bacon grease. Recently, I purchased thick slab bacon from a local farmer through our food coop. And since I have an abundance of lettuce, kale, and Swiss Chard growing out back, I decided I’d make a light and healthy meal: sauteed Swiss Chard, kale and onions in bacon fat with a generous helping of salad greens drizzled in bacon drippings and bits, and some organic pinto beans on the side. Now this meal is not vegan or vegetarian, but it is high in protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber.   And best of all, it’s quick and easy.
