Easy Swiss Chard

 

INGREDIANTS

  • 1 large bunch of fresh Swiss chard

  • 2 tsp. olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, sliced

  • pinch of dried crushed red pepper

  • 1/4 tsp. of whole coriander seeds (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Prep the chard stalks and leaves: Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Either tear or cut away the thick stalks from the leaves.

    Cut the stalk pieces into 1-inch pieces. Chop the leaves into inch-wide strips. Keep the stalks and leaves separate.

  • Sauté garlic and crushed red pepper flakes: Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan on medium high heat. Add garlic slices, crushed red pepper, and coriander seeds (if using), and cook for about 30 seconds, or until the garlic is fragrant.

  • Add Swiss chard stalks: Add the chopped Swiss chard stalks. Lower the heat to low, cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Add the chopped leaves: Add the chopped chard leaves, toss with the oil and garlic in the pan. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 more minutes. Turn the leaves and the stalks over in the pan.

  • If the chard still needs a bit more cooking (remove a piece and taste it), cover and cook a few more minutes.

    Serve immediately.
