Paleo Garlicky Swiss Chard
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a one-pot approach to cooking hearty, flavorful Swiss chard. To avoid watery, overcooked chard, we started cooking the greens in a covered pot just until they wilted down. Then we uncovered the pot and continued to cook the greens until all the liquid evaporated. Cutting the tough stems smaller than the tender leaves meant that we could throw both in the pot at the same time and still get evenly cooked results. Plenty of garlic, sautéed in olive oil before the chard was added, gave this simple side a big hit of flavor, while a splash of mild white wine vinegar and red pepper flakes added brightness and subtle heat.
