Garlic and greens. Always a safe bet.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 6 large garlic cloves, minced and pressed
  • 12-14 large swiss chard leaves and stalks, coarsely chopped

Heat the olive oil in a wok or heavy skilled and sauté the garlic until golden.  Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and reserve.  Add the greens and sauté until tender.  Add the salt.  Just before serving, sprinkle the reserved garlic over the chard.
