I’ve found a new supermarket in Hawley (about 10 miles away) that was recommended by the refrigerator guy in Home Depot after we rubbed our little hurts together about the paucity of quality produce in our region. The supermarket is an IGA and I’ve passed it many times on the road without seeing it.
The IGA had some lovely local vegetables including cabbage and chard that I purchased. Good, another option in the unrealistic search for France in Pennsylvania.
I made this tasty, quick and easy stir fry to go with some big, bloody(rare, not accursed) steaks. The vegetarian could make this stir fry without the bacon and it would still be good, just sprinkle it with some of Frugal’s pumpkin seeds for protein 😀
Chard and Cabbage Stir Fry
1/2 cup bacon, cut into dice or batons
1 tbsp olive oil
2 small shallots, thinly sliced
1/2 head cabbage, shredded
1 bunch chard, trimmed and shredded
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp water
In a wok, brown the bacon, remove and drain on a paper towel. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of bacon fat, then add the olive oil.
Briefly soften the shallots in the wok, then add the cabbage and chard, stir frying for about 2 minutes. Sprinkle on some cumin seed, salt and pepper, add the water, then cover and steam for 5 minutes. Stir in the bacon and serve.
