Sauteed Swiss Chard with Red Onions
48 mins (prep 10, cooking 38)
6 ingredients
10 servings
This was excellent, if somewhat time-consuming for a simple dish (the prep time was more like 30 mins for me, dominated by the process of separating chard leaves and stalks). I made it exactly as in the recipe, but used red chard and the colour was rich and worked really well with the red stalks (as in BarbryT's picture above). The garlic was a perfect touch, too. Thanks!
