This super-fast recipe is the exact opposite of the traditional chard and vinegar that I grew up on and grew tired of. Mildly sweet with a gingery bite.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 bunch rainbow chard - leaves and stems separated and chopped

  • cup chopped yellow onion

  • 2 (1/4 inch thick) slices fresh ginger root, peeled and julienned

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the chopped chard stems, onion, and ginger in the hot oil until they begin to soften; season with salt and pepper. Add the chopped chard leaves to the skillet; reduce heat to low. Continue cooking until the leaves have wilted, about 2 minutes more. Drizzle the maple syrup over the mixture; stir to coat evenly. Remove from heat and serve.
