Swiss Chard with Curry Spices
Washed Swiss chard has enough water clinging to its leaves to cook in its own steam.
1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon water
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
2 bunches Swiss chard, washed and shredded (16 cups)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 In a nonstick Dutch oven, heat the oil and water over low heat. Add the garlic and cook until tender, about 2 minutes.
2 Add the cumin, ginger, mustard seeds, pepper, and cardamom, and stir to combine. Cook 1 minute or until fragrant.
3 Add the Swiss chard and salt. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chard is tender, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Makes 4 servings
