|Braised Swiss Chard with Onions Balsamic Vinegar and Parmesan|
It is also delicious as a meatless entry, by adding whole wheat pasta (see below).
With the Parmesan cheese this is a substantial vegetable side dish, perfect for those times you need something more to add to a meal or when you have guests who unexpectedly show up for dinner.
And if they know you making this, they....will....come!
Swiss Chard with onions, balsamic vinegar and Parmesan cheese
by the seat of my pants!
serves 2-4, with pasta 4-6
1 large bunch of Swiss Chard, we like the red stem variety for this dish
1 thick slice onion, diced
toasted walnut pieces
Drain in a colander.
Add a splash of olive oil to a large skillet, when hot, add diced onion. Cook until golden brown.
Lay the drained chard leaves on a cutting board, and using a large knife cut in lengthwise pieces about 2 inches wide. Then cut crosswise to make (approximately) 2 inch squares.
|Offer additional vinegar at the table, if desired.|
For the pasta version: Cook 2 cups of whole grain pasta (small shapes work best for this dish) until al dente. Drain well. Toss with the chard after it has steamed. Serve in the same manner with Parmesan cheese, vinegar and the toasted walnuts.
