Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Swiss Chard
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic

Directions

Step 1
Wash well.
Step 2
Fold the leaf in half and cut along the spine to separate. This is one vegetable that you eat the greens as well as the stems.
Step 3
Cut the stems into 1" lengths and sauté in a bit of olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper until nearly tender.
Step 4
Chop the greens coarsely and add to pan. I added a diced tomato, but hear its also delicious with zucchini, onions and hot pepper. The greens cook down quickly and you have a wonderful colorful, good for you (loaded with vitamins A & C and minerals iron and calcium) side dish.
Step 5
You can store it fresh in a loosely closed bag in the fridge and it should last a week if you bought it fresh!
