Mushrooms, Onions & Swiss Chard

Happy 1st day of October! Wow – that snuck up on me fast! 🙂

Swiss chard is a very nutritious food. It is full of vitamins and nutrients. It has similar flavor characteristics to kale and spinach. It’s actually a good combination of the two. Kale has a very strong, distinct flavor and has a very tough texture. While spinach is more of a light, soft vegetable. I find Swiss chard to be flavorful and rather chewy but if you cook it right, the texture is as nice as the flavor. This dish is similar to sautéed spinach but packs an extra punch of flavor. The vinegar really brings out the flavors of the chard. It is a quick and easy way to get a ton of healthy nutrients. It pairs well with chicken or beef.

2 cups Swiss chard, chopped

1 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 onion, chopped into thin strips
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Add in chard, mushrooms, onion, garlic, pepper and salt. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add in white wine vinegar and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender and the chard is soft. Serve immediately.
