Swiss chard saute

Swiss chard has become a staple in my kitchen. Five years ago I was intimidated when I got it in my CSA, but now I sometimes add an additional one to my order.  The photo above is of tri-coloured swiss chard stems sweating in a skillet, it looked so pretty I had to take a picture!

This is how I make it when in a hurry. It’s simple and nutritious.

1 bunch Swiss chard leaves separated from stems.
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 c onion chopped
1 clove garlic

  1. Heat oil in large skillet.
  2. Add chopped onions and sweat them till they are soft, add chopped chard stems. Sweat until they are soft about 5 min and add garlic, cook for 1 min.
  3. Add the chopped Swiss chard leaves and cook till they are wilted and the released water has evaporated.
  4. Serve with salt and pepper.
