Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Swiss Chard

1 lb swiss chard
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sour cream
1/4 cup finely grated parmesan
1 Salt and Pepper

Recipe Directions for Roasted Swiss Chard

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.

  2. Wash chard leaved in several changes of cold water.

  3. Pull the stems out of each leaf and cut stems into 1/2 inch chunks. If the chard is older and thicker, you might need to use a knife to cut the stems out. Dry the leaves on paper towels or spin in a salad spinner.

  4. Put the stems in a 2 inch deep baking dish that is large enough to accommodate all the chard leaves later (I use an 8 by 8 pyrex). Drizzle with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and mix well. Roast in the middle of the oven until the stems are tender and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

  5. Turn down the oven to 350F. Pile the leaves on top of the stems. Cover with foil, and return to the oven. Bake until the greens wilt, 5-7 minutes.

  6. Stir in the cream, taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Return to the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cream is bubbly and lightly thickened.* Sprinkle with parmesan and return to the oven until parmesan is melted, 5-7 minutes.

  7. * The dish can be prepared up to this point in advance, chilled and refrigerated. Before serving, sprinkle with parmesan and bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the dish is heated through.
