  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fine sea salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cups cooked wild rice or white rice pilaf

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, garlic, pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt and parsley. Stir in rice pilaf and turkey. Set filling aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. If any Swiss chard leaves are longer than 12 inches, cut them in half crosswise. Flatten out any large stalks with a fork to allow for even blanching and easier rolling. Immerse 4 to 6 leaves at a time in boiling water and blanch for 1 minute. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet as done and allow leaves to drain and cool slightly. Arrange 1 leaf on a work surface, smooth side down. Place 3 to 4 tablespoons filling in the center then roll up, starting with the large end of the leaf and folding it over the filling to roll up like a burrito. Repeat process with remaining leaves and filling, placing rolls seam side down in a steamer basket as done. Steam for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the rolls reaches 160°F. Transfer to plates and serve.
