Chard (Swiss Chard) was a new vegetable to me. Rick had made it previously, so I wanted to try it. This is really his recipe.
We buy rainbow chard at the farmer’s market– so pretty, so easy and so delicious! I love the colors! If available, choose the rainbow variety, though the plain Jane is just as tasty. Also, of course, both are low carb, and full of good greens; see the link below for nutritional info. http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=16
- 1 -2 bunches Rainbow (or just green) Swiss Chard
- 1-2 Tbsp. Olive oil
- 3-4 Tbsp good balsamic vinegar
- Salt free seasoning/pepper to taste
TO DO: 1. Wash the chard (I use a large colander and wash each large leaf ) 2. Strip the leaves from the stems and cut off ends and discard any large, tough stems. 3. Chop stems into 1/2 or 1″ pieces, then chop leaves into I” pieces; separate stems from leaves. 4. Preheat a large sauté pan, add oil. Add vinegar. 5. Saute stems for approx. 10 min., then add leaves, and saute approx another 10 min. until vinegar is reduced. 6. Add spices and seasonings to taste. Enjoy! www.type2delicious.com
