Rainbow Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans

Rainbow swiss chard is not only beautiful but very high in vitamin A and K. It pairs together seamlessly with garbanzo beans, fresh tomatoes and lemon juice. I added some tofurkey for an extra boost of protein. A beautiful, nutritious and delicious meal. Enjoy!
