I got a bunch of chard in my produce box this week. So I feared it was time to attempt the sauteed greens. We have never attempted or even eaten it before. So the thought was daunting. But I decided to start with bacon. Because everything is good with bacon...And garlic. Recipe from Anne Burell
Its good! Kind of earthy and....green tasting. But really good!
Oil of choice
2-3 pieces bacon, diced
2 smashed garlic cloves
a pinch of red pepper flakes
1 bunch chard-
Stems, 1/2 inch slices
leaves, 1 inch tall strips
1/2 cup low sodium chick stock
Coat a pan lightly with oil. Add bacon, garlic, and red pepper flakes and heat over medium high. Once garlic browns, discard garlic.
Continue cooking until bacon is crisp.
Add stems and chicken stock. Cook until chicken stock is mostly gone.
Add leaves and cook until wilted.
Season with salt if needed (bacon and broth might be plenty. My stock was homemade with no salt, so I added some)
