Simple Sauteed Swiss Chard (Module 8)


16 ounce Chard, swiss, raw
1 1/2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1/2 medium White onions (small dice)
1 clove Garlic, raw (minced)
2 Tbsp Water
1/8 tsp. Salt
1 to taste Black pepper


Tear or cut the greens into bite-sized pieces, removing the hard stems.

Heat a large saucepot over medium-low heat. Add olive oil and onion and cook until it starts to turn translucent, about 4 minutes.

Add garlic and continue to cook, stirring often, for 30 more seconds. Turn down the heat if the onions begin to brown.

Add the greens, salt, and pepper to the pan. Stir the greens often. Add water if necessary to wilt, a few tablespoons at a time.

Continue stirring until greens are fully cooked, about 5 minutes.
