Roasted Pork Loin with Chard and Leek Gratin

Roasts are so simple for weeknights because they are hands-off. The fact that the side dish can also be baked in the same oven at the same time makes this dish perfect.

-1 pork loin
-2 ts ground caraway seeds
-1 ts celery salt
-1 ts pepper

Mix the spices together and rub all over the pork loin. Bake on 375 until the internal temp is about 120. Let rest until the internal temp reaches about 140, then slice and serve.

-2 leeks, thinly sliced
-1 bunch chard, chopped
-1 and 1/2 cups grated cheese
-salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste

Sautee the leeks until caramelized. Blanch the chard and squeeze out as much water as possible. Then mix everything together and place in a glass baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes while the roast is in the oven.
