Spicy Swiss Chard with Lemon

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Although 16 cups seems like a large amount of chard, it will cook down. Three simple ingredients--crushed red pepper, garlic, and fresh lemon juice--round out the flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 16 cups trimmed Swiss chard (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
