DIRECTIONS

  • Add the balsamic vinegar, cucumber, and swiss chard stems to a pot or frying pan with lid. Cook, while stirring, until all the vegetables are coated with the balsamic vinegar and are heated through.
  • Add the water and lemon juice, bring to a boil and simmer until the stems are halfway done.
  • Add the swiss chard leaves.
  • Add the salt and peper, to taste, and continue simmering until done.
  • NOTE: If you need more or less time just turn the heat up or down. Simmer at a low heat to keep it warm until the rest of the meal is done if needed. Just make sure to keep stirring it and if needed add more liquid.
