Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 1 bunch Swiss Chard fresh
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons water optional
- pinch crushed red pepper or more-according to taste
- salt to taste
- olive oil for drizzling
- Parmesan cheese optional
Set a large pot of water to boil.
Meanwhile, thoroughly clean Swiss chard by rinsing out.
Cut off stalks and set aside.
Once the water has started boiling, throw in the stalks. Boil for 3-5 minutes until tender.
Add the green leaves of the Swiss chard and continue to boil for approximately 2 minutes.
Over medium heat, drizzle olive oil in a large skillet.
Sauté minced garlic and crushed red pepper for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the drained Swiss chard and quickly cover your pot.
Sauté for 3-5 minutes or until tender and heated through. If necessary add a few tablespoons of water.
Season with salt.
Place on serving dish and drizzle with olive oil and shavings of Parmesan cheese.
I prefer my "bietola" chopped. While it is being sauteed, I use a scissor to cut it in bite-sized pieces.
