Ingredients

    6 cloves garlic, sliced
    2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    16 c (packed) stemmed and roughly chopped Swiss chard (about 5 large bunches)
    1/2 tsp red-pepper flakes
    1/2 tsp kosher salt

Directions

1. Heat garlic and oil in large skillet over medium-low heat until garlic begins to turn golden, about 3 minutes. Transfer mixture to small bowl and set aside.

2. Place greens, red-pepper flakes, and salt into the skillet. Using tongs, turn greens until wilted enough to fit in pan. Raise heat to medium and cover. Cook 7 to 10 minutes, tossing.

3. Transfer greens to a colander to drain. Return greens to pan and toss with reserved garlic and oil mixture.

Refrigerate leftover greens in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    I have also made this with spinach or add vinegar which is good as well. My mom has made this for us since we were little. - 4/11/08

    I make this all the time with various greens. You can add fresh mushrooms and top with parmesan cheese too! - 1/29/09

    I made this twice already, once with spinach and once with kale. I can't wait to try swiss chard. I need to watch the sodium in my diet so I skipped the salt and still thought the recipe was extremely flavourful. Thanks for this! - 5/1/08
