The trick with Swiss Chard, or rainbow chard as it is sometimes called it to cook the stalks for quite a while - I love the combo with Swiss chard and celeriac. It looks pretty and tastes great too. This recipe is one I developed for my tribe on The Greengrocer's Diet.

Ingredients
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 bunch swiss chard, stalks diced, leaves roughly chopped
400 grams celeriac, peeled and diced
1 pinch sea salt
640 grams eye fillet, fat trimmed
4 tsp buckwheat

Method

Preheat the oven to 180C

Heat the olive oil in a pan with the garlic and add the Swiss chard and celeriac to saute for 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish with the lemon juice and seasoning and place in the oven for the total time of 25 minutes.

After the veggies have cooked for about 10 minutes, heat a seasoned grill pan to hot. Brush the eye fillet with olive oil and sear on all sides for 2 - 3 minutes. Place the meat on a baking tray to cook through for approx 10 minutes or until you like it done. Remove the meat from the oven and cover it with a piece of foil and leave to rest.

Roast the buckwheat in a small fry pan for about 4 minutes or until they darken slightly in colour.

Slice the eye fillet and serve alongside the vegetables and sprinkle the buckwheat over the top.
