Sauteed Swiss Chard

Ingredients

  • 1-2 pounds Swiss chard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 thinly sliced spring garlic
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Rinse Swiss chard well. Trim tough ends; slice stalks about 3/4 inch thick. Slice leaves about 1 inch thick.

  2. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, warm olive oil. Cook garlic until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

  3. Stir in stalks; cook, stirring, until slightly soft, 5 to 6 minutes. Add half the leaves; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Cover; cook until wilted, about 4 minutes. Add remaining leaves; sprinkle with another teaspoon sugar. Cover; cook, tossing occasionally, until leaves are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. Uncover; cook until liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in red-wine vinegar; season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
