Soak swiss chard leaves in hot water for 15-20 minutes. Saute the garlic, celery, and carrots in the butter or oil. In a bowl, mix together the cooked rice, all the spices, the sauteed vegetables, the egg, and the raw meat. Place a scoop of the mixture on each swiss chard leaf and roll it up. Place rolls in a baking dish. Spread any remaining meat mixture over the top of your rolls and cover with tomato sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 15-30 minutes until it is bubbly and the edges are a bit crisp.
