Suprisingly good- but a couple of musts: 1. You must add feta cheese in at the end 2. You must add a garlic clove and 3. You must cook the Swiss chard right through or it will be chewy... No one likes chewy Swiss chard
One of the best greens recipe EVER! The whole family loved this. Very refreshing with the lemon. I used yellow onions in place of the shallot and scallion, and used canned, fire roasted tomatoes, as that's what was on hand. Also had rainbow chard, so it was beautiful as well. Oh, and I added Feta to the leftovers and that was a great addition as well. This is a keeper!
Swiss chard is a favorite here, in quiche, sauteed as a veg, etc. Get a good loaf of bread. I had a multi grain organic. Start the saute with the chopped shallots and 1/2 lb sliced mushrooms. S&P lightly with each addition. I had cannelleni beans on hand, and used a 1 lb can, drained and rinsed. Since it's mid winter, I subbed one 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes in puree. Sprinkle in some pasta or Italian seasoning and freeze dried basil. Add in the chard and chopped stems. Add a bit of veggie "broth from the box" if needed. Cover and cook a bit. Just let the chard shrink a bit, and not get grey. Then nestle a few eggs into spoon hollows in the veggie stew. Cover, and check every three minutes. Mine took about 9 minutes on very low to give perfectly set, not runny eggs with creamy yolks.
Red chard is paired with tomatoes, feta, and garlic in a creamy sauce makes a delicious, quick, and easy vegetarian main dish in the summer.
