1 ½ lbs. red or green Swiss chard

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2-4 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp. fresh ginger root, minced

2 Tbsp. water (or more if needed)

1 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce

¼ tsp. pepper

¼ cup walnuts, chopped and toasted*


1. Wash the chard and strip the leaves off the stalks.

2. Coarsely chop the greens. 

3. In a large skillet or stockpot with a lid, heat oil over medium heat.  Sauté garlic and ginger and cook for about 2 minutes.

3. Add greens and stir to coat with oil.   Add 2 Tbsp. water, cover, and cook until greens are wilted and soft, about 5 min.  Add more water if necessary.

5.  Season with the soy sauce and pepper.

6. Sprinkle with toasted walnuts. 

*NOTE:  To toast walnuts: heat walnuts in a dry pan over medium heat until slightly browned with a nutty aroma.  Remove from heat.
