Sauteed Swiss Chard with Raisins and Pine Nuts

Source: Everyday Food, October 2006

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches (about 1 1/2 pounds total) Swiss chard, stalks cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces, leaves torn into 2-inch pieces (keep stalks and leaves separate)
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Wash chard, leaving some water clinging to stalks and leaves; set aside. In a large saucepan with a lid, toast the pine nuts over medium-high heat, shaking pan to brown evenly, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from pan; set aside.

  2. In same saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. Add stalks, and cook until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add leaves, raisins, and garlic. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until tender, 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Pull lid back slightly, and tilt pan to pour off water. Stir in vinegar and pine nuts; season with salt and pepper. Serve.
