Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients:
  • 2 large bunches chopped Swiss chard
  • 1 medium clove garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 TBS balsamic vinegar or fresh lemon juice
  • extra virgin olive oil to taste
  • salt and black pepper to taste
Directions: Bring lightly salted water to a rapid boil in a large pot. Cut off tough bottom part of stems. Add the chopped leaves to the boiling water and simmer for only 3-5 minutes, until tender.
