Sauteed Swiss Chard

I plan to post for Landri’s 7 month birthday on Friday, but for now wanted to post a quick recipe that we enjoyed this evening. I very much regret not taking a photo of this delicious and healthy dish before we devoured it, but I will still share the recipe nonetheless and hope you give it a shot.  I got the recipe from a local farmer at the Pearl Brewery Farmer’s Market one Saturday and finally gave it a try tonight.  Even Scott *really* liked it and he doesn’t seek out healthy food like I do.

Ingredients:

  1. Olive Oil, 1-2 Tbsp
  2. 5 Garlic Cloves, minced
  3. Butter, to taste
  4. Salt, to taste
  5. Nutmeg, 1/4 tsp
  6. Parmesan Cheese, optional
  7. Large bundle of Swiss Chard

Directions:

  • Rinse and drain chard
  • Chop chard into bite size pieces using all stem and leaf
  • Use pan with lid over medium heat
  • Put garlic in olive oil, sauté for 1-2 min, just long enough for the garlic flavor to combine with the oil
  • Place chopped chard in pan
  • Put lid on pan
  • Stir a couple of times in a 4-5 min span
  • Chard will wilt to about a third
  • Remove from heat
  • Stir in butter, salt, and nutmeg
  • Sprinkle parmesan before serving and enjoy!
