Swiss Chard

  • 1 large bunch of fresh Swiss chard
  • 1 small clove garlic, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. water (optional)
  • Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
  • Salt & pepper
  1. Roughly chop Swiss chard into inch-wide strips.
  2. Heat a saucepan on a medium heat setting.
  3. Add olive oil, a few small slices of garlic and the crushed red pepper; sauté for about a minute.
  4. Add the chopped Swiss chard leaves; cover.
  5. Check after about 5 minutes. If it looks dry, add a couple tablespoons of water.
  6. Flip the leaves over in the pan, so that what was on the bottom, is now on the top; cover again.
  7. Check for doneness after another 5 minutes.
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste; serve immediately.
