I found this recipe while checking out allrecipes.com. I love Allrecipes, because these are recipes from real people and their vast recipe boxes! I was looking for another way to eat this week’s Swiss chard, and I thought I’d give this one a shot. I don’t have any pictures to share because let’s be honest; chard isn’t that pretty once it’s cooked. It looks like a big pile of spinach….not that appetizing via photo. You’ll have to let your mind do the imagining on this one!
I can tell you that this recipe is delish!! We will definitely be eating this regularly.
Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1/2 small red onion, diced
- 1 bunch Swiss chard, stems and center ribs cut out and chopped together, leaves coarsely chopped separately
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- salt to taste (optional)
- Melt butter and olive oil together in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic and onion, and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the chard stems and the white wine. Simmer until the stems begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chard leaves, and cook until wilted. Finally, stir in lemon juice and Parmesan cheese; season to taste with salt if needed.
