Swiss Chard Italiano

Technorati Tags:
I made this a while back and it was full of wonderful flavor (and vitamins/minerals).  I served it with whole wheat bread,  brown rice, and black beans for a complete meal.
I could have used a bigger pan (I think a wok would have been perfect)  because the kale was too fluffy until it cooked down. I actually had to cook the kale in a pot and then transferred it to the tomato/onion mix.

Ingredients and Directions

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 7 cups chopped Swiss Chard, Kale, or spinach
  • 16 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp basil

  • Heat oil in a LARGE nonstick skillet over medium heat, add garlic and onion. Cook for 3 min.
  • Add remaining ingredients. May want to transfer to a big pot because my large skillet wasn't large enough. Cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
