Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 10 min | Ready In: 20 min
2 lbs. swiss chard, washed, leaves and stems separated, roughly chopped
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup currants (or raisins)
salt and pepper, to taste
Soak currants in warm water for approx. 10 minutes and drain.
Bring a large pot of water to boil; salt it. Cook the chard stems until they are almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chopped leaves. Continue to cook until both stems and leaves are quite tender, another couple of minutes. Drain and set aside.
Place oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium low heat. Cook until the garlic begins to colour, about 5 minutes. Add the pine nuts and cook for another minute, stirring. Then add the chard, currants and salt and pepper. Cook and stir for another 2 minutes.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
