Ingredients

    of swiss chard

    tablespoons olive oil, reserve one tablespoon

    teaspoons minced garlic from jar (or fresh is okay)

How to Make BONNIE'S SWISS CHARD

Step-by-Step

  1. PREPARE SWISS CHARD
    I wash my Swiss Chard in three large bowls of water to remove any dirt, and drain them thoroughly. I remove the red stems from the Swiss Chard, cutting them away with a sharp knife. I then cut across the width of the leaves in about 2 inch wide sections. Try to make the pieces all about the same size.

    Place a large dutch oven with a lid on the burner over medium heat, and place two tablespoons of olive oil in it. When it begins to sizzle, add the garlic and move it around until it starts to turn brown and releases its fragrance.
  2. COOK THE GREENS
    Lower the heat to medium low. Add the prepared greens, pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste, to the dutch oven, it will fill it up, keep tossing the greens with a big wooden spoon and they will start to cook down, add the lid and cook about 5 minutes.

    Remove the lid and continue cooking until all the liquid is gone in the pot, and greens are tender, about 5 to 10 minutes more.
  3. TO SERVE THE GREENS
    Drizzle with the reserved one tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle liberally with white wine vinegar. (about 2 tablespoons) Here is how it looks! Enjoy!
