Swiss Chard, Beet Greens and Ricotta gluten-free muffins

Here I am, back again sharing why I’ve been so busy in my kitchen lately.  All the produce that the garden is generating at an alarming rate has to be turned into something nutritious, flavorful and freezable (Is that a word)?  So today I will be presenting these yummy gluten-free muffins.  I’ve used swiss chard here, in addition to the green tops of the beets that I had saved in the refrigerator.  The vivid and striking colors, texture and taste were just amazing!  Being gluten-free, you know the lack of carbs should definitely be an asset on the waistline, so don’t hesitate to reach out for seconds.  Eat these muffins for breakfast, lunch or dinner with a side salad or just a snack.
