    Thanks for posting recipes with brown rice. This one looks really good. Just one thing though what if you can’t find Swiss chard? What would you suggest as a substitute? Thanks

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Anne – Chard should be pretty much everywhere, especially during the winter months. But you can use just about any greens you like. Kale would be a good choice, or spinach. 🙂

  5. What could I use in place of chard?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Paula – Any type of greens will work. Spinach, kale, just about anything. 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Davey – It’s a green leaf veggie. Like kale or mustard greens.
