How to Make It

Step 1

Remove stems and center ribs from chard. Cut stems and ribs into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside. Coarsely chop leaves; set aside.

Step 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.

Step 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.

I loved this recipe (although my picky eaters did not). I will definitely make this again, even if it's just for me :-)

We LOVED this! (@ dotti202 - creme fraiche can be found usually with the specialty cheeses and in a container similar to a cream cheese tub.) Will definitely make again, and again. Made as is, except scaled back a bit.

looks good, but where do I find 1/3 cup crème fraîche? I have never used it before... Thanks!

Outstanding! Wish I would have known how good swiss chard can be before today, this will be a regular at our house.
