Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds Swiss chard, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup crème fraîche
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Remove stems and center ribs from chard. Cut stems and ribs into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside. Coarsely chop leaves; set aside.
  2. 2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add stems and ribs; cook 5 minutes. Stir in leaves; cook for 2 minutes or until leaves wilt. Drain well, pressing chard with the back of a spoon to remove as much water as possible.
  3. 3. Return pan to medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chard, crème fraîche, salt, and pepper. Cook 4 minutes or until chard is tender.
