I find that a lot of people aren't familiar with cooking with Swiss Chard. It makes an amazing side dish or meal as a Swiss Chard Stir Fry. It is super nutritious which makes it that much more fun to incorporate into meal time.
Prepare the chard by separating the stems from the leaves. You will eat both, but the stems our high in cellulose so they need to cook longer than the leaves. Once you've separated and chopped the stems, move to chopping some fresh garlic. Don't be shy, I use a lot and it's so good for you.
Now you should toast the pine nuts so they are lightly browned. This will really bring out their nutty flavor.
Next you should select and chop your favorites. Here are some ideas... Gala Apples, Olives, Chick Peas, Mushrooms and Cranberries. Add these and saute lightly.
I used literally all of the above except I didn't have any mushrooms on hand. Select some delicious hearty Balsamic Vinegar and you will drizzle this on at the end. Now once the saute has gotten everything melded, only then do you add the leaves. You want to make certain you are just "flash" sauting them so as not to over cook them. They are most delicious slightly wilted but still crisp.
Drizzle the balsamic on the finished stir fry, and serve. It is a great stand alone, but also a wonderful colorful, flavorful side.
I hope you try this Swiss Chard Stir Fry on your next meal. We like to have it at least once a week for our green fix.
