Creamy goat cheese, black beans, and brown rice wrapped in Swiss chard leaves and baked in marinara sauce.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. Fill a bowl (big enough to fit the chard leaves into) with ice water and set aside.
2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut each Swiss chard leaf in half lengthwise. Add the chard leaves to the boiling water and cook for 10 seconds. Remove them from the water using a slotted spoon or spider. Transfer the chard leaves to the bowl of ice water for a few seconds, then remove them from the ice water and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
3. Stir together the brown rice, black beans, spinach, goat cheese, cilantro, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Spoon 1 cup of marinara sauce over the bottom of the prepared pan.
4. Spoon about 1/3 cup of filling onto the end of each chard leaf, fold over the sides and roll up the leaf. Arrange the chard rolls, seam side down, in the pan. Spoon the remaining cup of marinara sauce over the top. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the rolls are warmed through.
