Chard with Mushrooms and Pine Nuts

Simple savory sauteed Swiss chard  with mushrooms


  • 1 bunch Swiss chard
  • 6 1/2 ounces crimini  or brown  mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup dry Swiss red wine, such as Merlot
  • 1 tablespoon fresh summer savory leaves or fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • freshly ground  nutmeg, to taste
  1. Rinse chard leaves thoroughly and drain, shaking the water off.
  2. Cut stems from chard  leaves and separate; chop stems and set aside, stack chard leaves, roll and shred and set aside.
  3. Heat butter in a deep saute pan; add chard stems and mushrooms and cook a couple minutes.
  4. Stir in the red wine and cook until it dissipates.
  5. Add the chard leaves to the pan, cover with a lid and allow to shrink, about 1 minute.
  6. Stir the chard and add the pine nuts, salt, pepper, and nutmeg, cooking and stirring several minutes until the chard is done to your liking.
Serves  4-6
Time: maybe 15 minutes or so
