From: www.nourishnetwork.com - Written on Mar 28, 2011 by Lia Huber This is my new go-to green dish. I can literally go from picking chard from the garden to getting this on the table in under 10 minutes. And don?t let the humble ingredients list fool you ? these greens are loaded with flavor. I recommend zipping and chopping the greens, then giving them a good rinse in a big bowl of cold water and spinning or straining them dry. A Microplane zester works best for this dish because it grates the garlic so finely as to make almost a paste. If you don?t have a Microplane zester, use the finest grater you have and cook a tad longer.

Recipe Ingredients for Swiss Chard with Grated Garlic

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
12 cups Swiss chard, cleaned, zipped and chopped (about 3 bunches)
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 freshly ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Swiss Chard with Grated Garlic

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the chard and toss to coat. Cook for 3 minutes, until chard is well wilted.

  2. Pour in remaining 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon oil. Grate the garlic onto the chard, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss several times to distribute the garlic and coat the leaves evenly. Cook for 2-3 minutes more, until chard is wilted and garlic is fragrant.
