Simple Swiss Chard

Oh, chard!  My very favorite veggie to grow because it's so easy (I have a brownish-black thumb) and versatile to serve.  You'll see a number of recipes for it over the next few weeks.  This one is for a simple side dish that goes well with almost any kind of meat.


Simple Swiss Chard


Pick chard, wash very well and remove the lower stalk.  Cut in half, or smaller if you want.  In a pot, melt some butter, coconut oil or bacon fat.  Add a clove of garlic, minced and sauté. Add a pinch of red pepper flakes. Add chard, cover and steam five minutes. Add a little water if needed. Flip the leaves over and cook again for about five minutes.  Add some kosher salt and a little more butter.  Serve hot.
