Chard Sauté with Anchovies

11 Oct

A very simple and tasty way of cooking Swiss chard that only takes minutes to prepare. It tastes so good we sometimes have this on its own as a starter with fresh sourdough bread. You can also serve it as a vegetable accompaniment or tapas.
Prep 6min Cook 7min

  • 500g Swiss chard
  • 8-10 anchovy fillets (1 small tin)
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 4 tbsp Olive oil

Wash the chard to get rid of any soil or beasties and shred the leaves and stalks finely. Keep the leaves and stalks separate as the stalks will take longer to cook than the leaves.
Chop the anchovy fillets finely.
Heat the oil in a large pan or wok. Add the garlic and fry for 1 minute without burning, add the anchovy keep stirring until the anchovies melt into the oil. Add the chard stalks and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until they start to soften add the chard leaves mix well lower heat and cover continue cooking for 5 minutes or until the chard is tender. We like it fairly crisp but you can cook it longer if you prefer
