This week’s recipe features Swiss Chard, one of our all-time favorite vegetables because it is so versatile and is abundant all summer long! It’s great raw in a chard slaw, used instead of lettuce on a sandwich, or cooked up like in the recipe below.
We will be selling Swiss Chard at the Downtown Middleton Farmers’ Market this Tuesday from 3-6:30pm (behind the Middleton Public Library), so you can try this recipe out for yourself!
- Prep time: 15 minutes
- Cook time: 20 minutes
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 large onions, sliced 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch wide slices, root to stem
- 1 pound chard, center ribs removed, leaves roughly chopped
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 teaspoons sherry or red wine vinegar
1 Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over high heat until the oil is almost smoking. Add the onions and toss to coat with oil. Sauté for 10-12 minutes stirring often, until the onions are soft and browned on the edges. Sprinkle with salt while the onions are cooking.
2 Add the chard to the onions and mix well with tongs. Once the chard wilts, 2 to 4 minutes, add the honey, caraway seeds, celery seeds, and black pepper. Toss well to combine and cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring often. Add the vinegar right before serving.
Yield: Serves 4-6.
