YIELD: 4 SERVINGS
I first tried Swiss chard just a couple of years ago, and these days, I’m making up for lost time! And it turns
out that you can actually eat the whole leaf, including the stems (the stems take longer to cook, which is
why I add them to the skillet first). Swiss chard is really delicious when it’s simply sautéed, then topped with
lemon juice and Parmesan cheese. It goes well with almost anything—including roasted chicken or grilled
steak or salmon.

Cut the chard leaves crosswise into 1-inch (2.5 cm) strips. Slice the stems.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until starting to

kosher salt, and black pepper. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese just before serving.
