Pan Sautéed Swiss Chard

by Buck on June 9, 2011

Swiss Chard is in the markets now and is on our table at least once a week. Swiss Chard is a favorite in our house and can be prepared any number of ways. A quick pan saute is a great way to prepare both the stalks and the leaves

Ingredients:

1 bunch of Swiss Chard
2 cloves minced fresh garlic
Extra virgin olive oil
Juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Rinse chard thoroughly under running water
Dry with paper towels
Cut and separate the stalks from the leaves
Cut stalks into ½ inch pieces
Chop leaves into bite size pieces
In skillet lightly cover pan with olive oil
Over medium heat sauté garlic for 2 minutes
Add chard stalks and continue sauté for 2 minutes
Add leaves, then lemon juice and cover pan
Sauté covered for about 5 -6 minutes-till stalks are tender
Salt & pepper to taste- drizzle olive oil lightly and serve
