Swiss Chard Pumpkin Dish Recipe

Quickly made up, delicious Swiss chard pumpkin dish. I call this kind of cooking: improvised cooking, which is basically my everyday cooking style. I don’t like wasting good food, especially veggies. So, I bought Swiss chard to make a tutorial for my recent recipe : “pumpkin and bulgur stuffed chard leaves”.

It’s a great recipe, but a bit time taking. And you know, how quickly fresh veggies can go bad if not used on time. And who would let that goodness to go to waste? Right, no one, therefore I decided to make something quickly and, why not, also film and share,
