http://www.downinghollowfarm.com/ grew this bunch of greens. The charming folks at Simply Recipes http://simplyrecipes.com/ showed me a way to make swiss chard sing!
Sauteed Swiss Chard
1 large bunch of fresh Swiss Chard
1 small garlic clove,sliced
2 TBL olive oil
2 TBL water
pinch of dried crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp butter
-Rinse out the swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Remove the toughest third of the stalk,discard. Roughly chop into inch-wide strips.
- Heat a saucepan to medium heat setting,add olive oil,a few slices of garlic and red pepper flakes.Saute for about a minute. Add the chopped swiss chard leaves and cover. Check after about 5 minutes.If it seems a little dry add a couple of tablespoons of water. Flip leaves,so what's on top is now on the bottom. Cover again,check after 5 minutes.(check a piece for doneness,taste it). Add salt to taste and a small amount of butter. Remove to a serving dish.
