Sautéed Swiss Chard

20120316-171209.jpg

Today I found myself with a large harvest/pruning of rainbow swiss chard, so I decided to make something with it.

You’ll need:

1 bunch Swiss chard, washed

7 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt + pepper

A handful of nuts of your choice

Procedure:

1.) Cut off the hard spines of the leaves and toss them in compost.

2.) Chop the chard leaves into pieces, however way you like.

3.) Heat the oil and then add the minced garlic. Sauté the garlic for about 20 seconds.

4.)Add the leaves and continue to stir the chard. You’ll want to cook the chard until it is tender. Add your choice of nuts.

This was a really easy, very delicious side dish. I will try the same recipe with kale soon.
