Red Chard and Asparagus Heaven Saute

What you need: 

1 bunch red chard, chopped
olive oil, as needed
1 bunch asparagus, cut into 3" pieces
6 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

What you do: 

1. Add the chard to a saute pan with a little olive oil and cover. Cook over medium-low heat until the chard wilts a little and makes room. Add the garlic, asparagus and lemon juice and toss.
2. Add salt and pepper to taste. Saute over medium-low heat until the asparagus is cooked to your liking. While this cooks, toast the walnuts in a small, dry saute pan until fragrant.
3. Add walnuts to the cooked chard and asparagus, season, toss and enjoy over your favorite grain!
Source of recipe: My boyfriend gave me the ingredient list, but I have to take a little credit for the masterpiece this became. I served it on top of couscous, but your favorite grain would do. Simple, flavorful and filling. May induce feelings of euphoria!
