Quinoa with prosciutto, garlic, tomato and chard

ate.2013.02.11.l.jpg

Another of my quinoa variations, which also include Swiss chard with pancetta and quinoa and Spicy quinoa with chorizo and peppers. This was good. I think the one with pancetta is still my favorite, though.

1.5 oz. proscuitto, thinly sliced, then cut into strips
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small tomato, diced
red pepper flakes
3 large leaves of Swiss chard, stem removed, then cut into 1" strips
1/4 cup quinoa (measured before cooking, then cooked)

Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add oil to the pan. Add the prosciutto and cook for a few minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a few minutes. Add the tomato and red pepper flakes and cook for a few minutes. Add the chard and cook for a few minutes. Add the cooked quinoa. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
