It’s become a favorite winter side dish of mine (a recent version is pictured above). I am always surprised at the sweetness and crispy-ness….which makes it a healthy potato-chip substitute to boot. :)

Super Simple Chard

Serves 2 (double up for more!)

Ingredients:

2 TB extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch Swiss chard, stalks discarded, leaves cut into wide ribbons (hint: Layer a few leaves on top of each other to reduce prep time!)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Heat the olive oil on a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until tender and aromatic, about 2 minutes. Add the Swiss chard and balsamic vinegar; cook and stir until the chard is wilted and tender, about 5-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve. Source: allrecipes.com
