Simple Winter Greens (6 servings)
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 bunch Swiss chard
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup low sodium vegetable broth
- kosher salt
Remove leaves of kale from centre stems, tearing into chunks. Wash well and spin dry. Repeat with chard.
Heat large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add ½ the olive oil, and sauté onion for several minutes until just starting to brown. Add garlic and sauté another 1-2 minutes. Add remaining oil, then add kale in batches, stirring to wilt down before adding more. Add broth and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes. Add Swiss chard and a little salt & simmer another 5 minutes until greens are all wilted, tender and deep green in colour. Adjust seasoning as needed.
