Swiss chard Sautéed with Orange

I’m always looking for more ways to add more fresh greens into my diet. Fall is the perfect time to find local fresh greens. I’m fortunate that I live in an area where there are a lot of farms and produce stands.

I recently came across some fresh local Swiss chard. Swiss chard is a green leafy vegetable, which is highly nutritious and is considered to be one of the healthiest vegetables available.

Swiss chard cooks up similar to spinach and if you can’t find swiss chard, you could use spinach instead of Swiss chard

This recipe for Swiss chard is easy and quick and makes a wonderful side dish for pork, chicken and steak.

Swiss chard Sautéed with Orange

Ingredients

2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 bunches Swiss chard (large stems removed), leaves cut into 1-inch strips

1 Orange-Juiced

Zest from 1 orange cut into wide strips

Salt to taste

Black pepper to taste

Directions

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add Swiss chard and orange zest. Cook stirring frequently about 4 minutes until the swiss chard wilts. Season with salt and black pepper.  Add the juice of the orange and toss to coat. Serve hot.
