  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and pour in enough water to reach just below the bottom of the insert. Bring the water to a boil. Add the chard and steam until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the raisins and pine nuts in the hot oil until the pine nuts turn golden, about 5 minutes. Add the chard, season with salt and pepper, and continue cooking while stirring constantly until the chard is hot, about 2 minutes.

Delicious...made it just as the recipe called for and loved it.

This was very delicious! The texture was terrific and had just the right amount of sweetness. I substituted chopped pecans in this dish only because I didn't have pine nuts on hand. But I'm sure...

Almost too sweet unless paired with something salty (grilled fish).

Loved how simple, easy, healthy and tasteful this recipe is, I make it all the time!

I used my homemade, oven dried raisins. It was amazing! Great recipe! Serve it with garlic cheese grits and all you need is an entree.

We substituted spinach and it was great.

This was a delicious addition to an all-vegetarian Spanish dinner, alongside yellow rice, black beans, and plantains. I followed the recipe as is and didn't make any additions. It was excellent!
