Amazing Swiss Chard Recipe, Southern Style

Standard

This simple recipe is made with produce I worked for at the Johnson’s Backyard Garden in East Austin. The produce is local, organic, AND wonderful.  Everyone should seek out a CSA close buy and support them.  Farming fresh, organic produce is hard work and is deserved to be enjoyed sought after!

Prep: 5 min

Cook: 10-15 min

Serves: 2-3

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 slices of fresh nitrate free center cut bacon, sliced into bits
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6-10 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 yellow onion sliced and quartered
  • 1 bunch of swiss chard, chopped (organic)
  • 1/2 C white wine
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a large skillet cook bacon until crisp, transfer bacon out of skillet with slotted spoon.
  2. Turn burner to medium and leave as much of the rendered bacon grease you would like to cook the rest of the ingredients, I leave about a TBS in there and wipe the rest out, more the better 🙂
  3. Add the garlic, mushrooms, and onions and cook for about 3-5 min.
  4. Add swiss chard and mix around for 1 min, then add wine and lemon juice, cook for another min or two to let some of the liquid reduce.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste and then ENJOY!
