Swiss Chard (TNT)

Post by pstarkoski on Sat Apr 17, 2010 11:08 pm

My sister gave me a great big batch of Swiss chard that she just picked out of her garden. I have never really made it before but thought I should give it a try. I found this recipe on line and this veggie is really great! It cooks like spinach in that you start out with a huge batch of it but it cooks down to just enough for two or three serving! It was wonderful and I can't wait till she gives me some more!!

Swiss Chard

1 large bunch of fresh Swiss chard
1 small clove garlic, sliced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp water
Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon butter

Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Remove the toughest third of the stalk, discard or save for another recipe (such as this Swiss chard ribs with cream and pasta). Roughly chop the leaves into inch-wide strips.
Heat a saucepan on a medium heat setting, add olive oil, a few small slices of garlic and the crushed red pepper. Sauté for about a minute. Add the chopped Swiss chard leaves. Cover. Check after about 5 minutes. If it looks dry, add a couple tablespoons of water. Flip the leaves over in the pan, so that what was on the bottom, is now on the top. Cover again. Check for doneness after another 5 minutes (remove a piece and taste it). Add salt to taste, and a small amount of butter. Remove the swiss chard to a serving dish.

I sprinkled with some red wine vinegar just before serving.
