Greens and Rice Casserole
If you have a lot of greens and want a quick and easy way to use them up, this is the perfect recipe. It can be made ahead as a take-along dish for a potluck.
1 red onion
4 cups of swiss chard, kale or spinach
2 cups cooked rice
olive oil
salt and pepper
1/2 cup grated parmesan or romano cheese
Peel and cut the onion in half and then cut in thin slivers. Wash the greens really well and pat dry. Cut into thin strips.

Heat oil to medium high heat in a heavy frying pan and add the onions. Saute until just becoming translucent then add the rice and stir well to coat with oil. Add the greens and mix. Cover and steam for 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir rice and add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and pour into a greased casserole dish. Fold in the cheese reserving 2 tbsps to sprinkle on the top.

Bake rice for 15 to 20 minutes to melt the cheese and allow the flavours to blend.
