Siliq bi Tahina (Swiss Chard with Tahina)

I was told this recipe is from the UAE.I don't know if this is true, if anyone knows , please let me know.This swiss chard dish is good paired with either chicken or fish.

2 1/2 lbs. swiss chard, stems removed, cut into med. sized pieces
4c water
2 large garlic cloves, mashed
2 oz. tahini
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 oz. lemon juice
1/4 c fresh mint, chopped

1.Rinse the swiss chard under cold water and add them to salted water pot and cook until tender, maybe 20 minutes.

2.In the meantime, in a small bowl add the garlic, tahina, olive oil, and lemon juice and combine.It should have a salad dressing-like consistency.If not, add a little bit of water to thin it out.

3.Once swiss chard is cooked,remove from water and drain and put in a serving bow.Add the tahina dressing and mix thoroughly.Garnish with the fresh mint and serve immediately.
