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


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


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
