Sauteed Swiss Chard with Peas
Sure, sides aren’t as important as mains, but they can make or break the whole meat altogether. Sides elevate the dish and make it spectacular, so having a few recipes on hand is essential for all seasons of the year. Especially if you’re hosting. There’s always an abundance of swiss chard in the summer in our garden. We love cooking with swiss chard because it’s so quickly prepared and so versatile. This beautiful green vegetarian side is flavorful, healthy, and light, made in just 10 minutes.
Cut off bigger and thicker swiss chard stalks. Place a large skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the swiss chard and spinach. Saute for a minute.
cook and serve
Add 60 ml or 1/4 cup water to the skillet along with the frozen peas. Continue to cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Then add the butter and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, stir to combine, and remove from the heat. Serve with your favorite main dish.
