Talking With My Mouth Full
Made this just last night from our chard from our farm share. It's a weight watchers recipe: Swiss Chard with raisins and almonds.Ingredients 2 Tbsp slivered almonds 1 1/2 tsp olive oil 1/3 cup(s) shallot(s), chopped 2 pound(s) Swiss chard, fresh, ends trimmed, cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch wide pieces 2 Tbsp golden seedless raisins, chopped 2 Tbsp water 1/2 tsp table salt, or to taste 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar Instructions Set a large nonstick pot over medium heat. When hot, toast almonds, stirring often, until lightly golden, about 3 minutes; remove from pan, chop and set aside. Heat oil in same pot over medium heat. Add shallots; cook, stirring often, until light golden, about 4 minutes. Add Swiss chard to pot and increase heat to high; cook, tossing, until chard wilts, about 3 minutes. Add raisins, water, salt and crushed red pepper; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until chard is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar. Transfer to a serving bowl; sprinkle with toasted almonds. Yields about 3/4 cup of Swiss chard and 1 1/2 teaspoons of almonds per serving.
THANKS! I think I have that all. Instead of shallot I'll use red onion that I pulled on Monday!
I was going to send a recipe very similar to Erin's, just with pine nuts instead of almonds. I'm looking for another one at some point though, so let me know if you run across one!
