Italian Style Swiss Chard

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Buster's friend

Swiss chard is a delicious easy to grow green that is super beautiful to boot - the stalks can be pearly white, brilliant red or even vivid yellow. This is a fast & tasty way to prepare the swiss chard cranking out in the garden. I can make a mea of it with a couple of poached eggs & a little grated Parmesan/Romano cheese.

This was really good. I love stir fried greens, so tasty. I would increase the capers, garlic and balsamic so that you could really taste those flavors too.

  2. In a 6 to 8 quart pan over medium high heat, stir oil, garlic and capers until garlic is slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add chard stems; stir until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in chopped leaves, part at a time if pan if full, cover and cook until wilted, about 4 minutes.
  3. Mix in vinegar; season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish a serving dish with reserved chard leaves; spoon greens along side.
