Sauteed Swiss Chard with Apples and Pine Nuts

Apples add a sweet note to this tender sauteed swiss chard, while the savory onions and parmesan balance that out and the pine nuts add crunch.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Apples and Pine Nuts

  • 1 T. oil
  • 1 bunch of chard
  • 1 red or yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 apple, sliced thinly
  • A handful of pine nuts
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parmesan cheese, grated

Cut the chard leaves into 1-2 inch pieces and cut the stems into 1/4 pieces, keeping the stems and leaves separate.

Heat the oil in a skillet.  

Add the onions, apples, and chard stems to the skillet and saute for a few minutes until mostly tender.  Add the chard leaves and saute until reduced in volume and tender. (You can heap the pan full because it will really shrink in size.)

Season with pinenuts, salt and pepper, and grated cheese.  Enjoy!
