Swiss Chard & Shrimp Sauté with Zoodles
medium organic zucchini
or 12 oz. of your favorite pasta
bunch Swiss chard
extra virgin olive oil
5 to 6
5 to 6
peeled, cleaned & tail-off (thawed)
fresh lemon juice
about 1/2 of a lemon
fresh ground pepper
Optional: 1 cup cubed feta cheese
and fresh-ground black pepper
Spiralize zucchini into noodles
, set aside. (Or cook 12 oz. of your favorite pasta according to the instructions on the package.)
Remove stems from the Swiss chard and cut leaves into 1-inch pieces as shown in photo above.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil, green onions and garlic. Sauté about 1 to 2 minutes until onion begins to soften.
Add the shrimp and toss well to coat. Then add the lemon juice to the skillet and give it a quick stir. Top with the Swiss chard.
Cover the pan to allow the chard to wilt about 3 to 5 minutes.
Next, add the zucchini noodles and toss well with the chard mixture. (If using pasta instead, add in place of the zoodles.)
Cover pan and allow zoodles to warm about 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove skillet from the heat and toss together to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide among four bowls and top with cubed feta, if desired.
