Quick Swiss chard with garlic and pinenuts


Swiss Chard is typically one of those vegetables that are hard to find here. I don’t know why but maybe the fact that they don’t stay fresh for very long has something to do with it. I am not sure. They are also a perfect vegetable to grow in your own garden. You cut off a bunch and it just keeps growing to keep you with a batch of chard all the time. This is a really simple dish but perfect as a side dish with some roasted chicken or for a light lunch. Which is how I used it.
