Ingredients
  • 1 bunch of rainbow chard, washed
  • Olive oil, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 garlic scapes, washed and finely minced
Instructions
  1. Wash your chard really well and trim the bottoms. Remove the hard stem (much like celery) from the leaves and bottom. Keep that separate.
  2. Then over medium heat, place some olive oil into your saucepan and once hot, add the thick stalks and scapes to your pan.
  3. Cook down for about 4 minutes. Then add your greens and cover. They will wilt down just like spinach. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Add salt and/or pepper as necessary.
  4. Serve immediately or cover in a tupperware container and refrigerate.
