Ingredients for A simple side dish of Swiss chard

Step-by-step instruction of cooking A simple side dish of Swiss chard

Step 1

Onion peeled, cut into cubes. Wash the chard, dry it, then split into sheets. The white part cut into cubes.

Step 2

The green part cut into ribbons. The easiest way to do the folding of 5-6 leaves on top of each other and turning roll.

Step 3

In a frying pan on a medium heat in vegetable oil fry onions until zolotisty. Add the white part of the chard, stew for 5 minutes. Cover and simmer for another 5 minutes in their own juice. If juice is not enough, be SURE to add a spoonful or two of water.

Step 4

After 10 minutes add the green part of the chard, prisolit, stir and simmer for another 10 minutes. If the liquid boils off, add another spoon of water.

Step 5

Open the lid and see the effect of spinach - what was a mountain became a modest fragrant bunch. Two sun-dried tomato (2 halves) grind and add to the chard. Mix, flavored with ground black pepper, turn off the heat and allow 5 minutes to infuse.

Step 6

The side dish is traditionally served with stewed meat - pork or beef, but the vegetable option with boiled or baked potatoes very well. And with barley - even beauty.
