The bacon and garlic really enhance the flavor of the chard in this recipe ... this works equally well with Swiss chard or rainbow chard.

Ingredients

4
slices bacon, chopped
1
bunch swiss chard
3
cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1
tbsp butter
salt and pepper

Directions

  • 1 Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until just browned, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 While the bacon is cooking, separate the chard leaves from the stems. Tear the leaves into rough pieces, then chop the stems into small pieces.
  • 3 Add the garlic to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 4 Add the butter and chard stems and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 5 Stir in the chard leaves into the skillet. Toss with the garlic/bacon/chard stem mixture. Continue cooking and tossing until just wilted. It should soften, but should mostly retain its shape.
  • 6 Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
