Ingredients You'll Need
1 large bunch of fresh Swiss chard
1 small clove garlic, sliced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp water
Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon butter
Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly.
Roughly chop into inch-wide strips.
Remove the toughest third of the stalk, discard
Heat a saucepan on a medium heat setting
add olive oil, a few small slices of garlic and the crushed red pepper.
Saut� for about a minute.
Add the chopped Swiss chard leaves.
Check after about 5 minutes.
If it looks dry, add a couple tablespoons of water.
Flip the leaves over in the pan, so that what was on the bottom, is now on the top.
Check for doneness after another 5 minutes (remove a piece and taste it).
Add salt to taste, and a small amount of butter.
