Preparation

for 4 servings

Step

1

Of 2

Precook the chard and prepare for pan-frying

Bring large sauce pot of salted water to boil.  Add chard, and allow to blanche so still al dente when tasted, but stems softened.  Remove from heat, and drain.

When cool enough to handle, place chard onto working surface.  Chop coarsely with sharp knife or half-moon chopper.  Set aside.  

Step

2

Of 2

Pan-fry the chard and finish dish

While chard is chopped and cooling, coat bottom of sauté pan with generous amount of extra-virgin olive oil and heat.  Smash garlic cloves, removing skin.  Cut each clove in half, set aside.

When oil is shimmering, add garlic and a pinch of red chili flakes.  Allow garlic to brown slightly, adding slightly cooled chard to pan.  Adjust to taste with salt, and complete the cooking process over medium heat.  Cooking time should be maximum 10 minutes longer - if you want to continue cooking a bit longer, make sure the heat is lowered.

Serve hot, directly from the cooking process for best flavor.  You can add a splash of freshly-squeezed lemon juice for additional flavor depth.
