Sweet and Sour Swiss Chard
Are you trying to eat something green and healthy at least once a day? This sweet and sour Swiss chard with turkey bacon is a great change of pace!
Servings: 4 servings
- 3 slices turkey bacon (cut crosswise into matchsticks)
- 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1 shallot (cut in half and thinly sliced)
- 1 bunch Swiss chard (stems removed and thinly sliced, leaves chopped)
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar
- Freshly ground black pepper
Cook the turkey bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
Add the olive oil to the skillet, then add the garlic, shallot, and chard stems. Cook until the shallot and chard stems soften, about 2 minutes.
Add the cider vinegar with the sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Add the chard leaves and toss until the greens have wilted, about 5 minutes.
Season with pepper and serve with bacon sprinkled on top.
This recipe is for 4 servings.
Feel free to substitute kale, watercress, dandelion greens, or any other leafy greens in this recipe.
Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Store bacon separately so it doesn't become soggy.
