Instructions Checklist
  • Wash all greens, and shake off excess (but not all) water. Heat a large saute pan over high heat, and add kale, collards, 1 teaspoon salt, and wine. Cover, and cook until greens wilt, about 2 minutes, turning occasionally. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, turning greens occasionally, until almost tender, about 15 minutes. Remove cover. Add chard leaves, and cook, turning with tongs, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Transfer greens to a bowl.

  • Add 4 tablespoons butter to pan, and melt over high heat. Add shallots, garlic, and chard stems, and saute until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in chestnuts, and saute 1 minute. Return greens to pan, stirring to incorporate, and remove from heat.

  • Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour, and whisk to incorporate. Slowly whisk in milk and cream, and bring to a simmer. Simmer, whisking constantly, until sauce thickens slightly and begins to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Add nutmeg and red-pepper flakes. Season with salt.

  • Stir sauce into greens, and cook over medium heat until warmed through. If not serving immediately, let cool completely, then refrigerate. Reheat over low heat before serving.

Unbelievably delicious. I omitted the cream and used 2 cups of whole milk. It was still amazing. I'm sure it would be even better with the cream, though. A new favorite.
