This super-fast recipe is the exact opposite of the traditional chard and vinegar that I grew up on and grew tired of. Mildly sweet with a gingery bite.

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the chopped chard stems, onion, and ginger in the hot oil until they begin to soften; season with salt and pepper. Add the chopped chard leaves to the skillet; reduce heat to low. Continue cooking until the leaves have wilted, about 2 minutes more. Drizzle the maple syrup over the mixture; stir to coat evenly. Remove from heat and serve.

Mmmmm! I love this recipe! While the chard was wilting, I added chick peas (garbanzo beans) to the skillet, and served the whole thing over a sort of quinoa "pilaf". Also, using red chard gives the chick peas a lovely, slightly pinkish colour. Altogether, this makes for a complete, easy, and delicious meal. Thanks for the recipe!

Love this recipe with 2 personal modifications: chopped fresh garlic to the onion/ginger/stems... and instead of maple syrup, I drizzle Agave Nectar!

Really good. Added a bit of lemon to it and used honey instead of maple. Same effect, delicious dish.
