Chard Surprise (TNT)

Chard Surprise

1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted (toasted slivered almonds
are good too)
1/3 cup golden raisins
2 pounds chard, washed and chiffonade cut
2 tablespoons butter or marg.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 or 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast the pine nuts for 5
minutes in the oven or toast them in a dry hot
skillet.
Soak the raisins in water for 15 minutes and drain.
Wash, dry, and remove the stalks from the chard, I use
some of the stalks, I like the crunch. Stack the chard
and cut crosswise into ribbons (chiffonade cut).
In a large pan, heat the butter and the oil and add
the garlic and salt.
Saute the chard over medium-high heat for
approximately 5 minutes or until tender.
Add the raisins and stir in the pine nuts. Salt to
taste. Serves 4.

PEG’S NOTES: I couldn’t find any Swiss chard, so I used kale instead. ..
I also added some raspberry balsamic vinegar at the end along with the raisins and pine nuts
