Swiss Chard with ginger

Savory!!! Everything below was inspired by my dear friend, Jaylen.


Swiss Chard or any greens, one bunch (I like rainbow since it’s so colorful)
Onion or shallot, red or yellow or none, chopped
Garlic, 3 -5 cloves, chopped
Olive oil or sesame oil, a few tablespoons for sauting


Fresh ginger, a few tablespoons, grated
Rice Wine Vinegar, a few tablespoons
Lemon, half to a whole
Sesame oil, a tablespoon or two
Pepper to taste
Soy sauce, a few tablespoons


Free for all….experiment….

Cut the chard or any greens into half inch to one inch strips. Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Saute the onion until soft. Place the garlic on the onion….mainly to prevent burning the garlic. Stir and saute. Add the greens. Turn over with tongs or a spoon to lightly coat with juices and oil. While these are cooking down, mix your sauce. In a small bowl combine rice wine vinegar, lemon, soy sauce, sesame oil and a pinch of ginger along with some fresh ground pepper. Stir and taste the sauce. Add whatever you like from here….a little more of this or that until it tastes good. Flip the greens now and then and sprinkle the ginger over the top of the greens after they have reduced in size and released some juices. Once the greens have become soft and wilted, to your taste, pour the sauce over the greens and ginger. Stir and devour!!! EnjoyO!!!
