Swiss Chard with Carrots and Celery

Swiss Chard with Carrots and Celery
by James Belardo

We love vegetables in Cucina Dello Zio, all kinds. The leafy green and often multi-colored Swiss Chard is highly nutritious and very tasty. We also love them with beans (Swiss Chard with Cannellini Beans and Swiss Chard with Romano Beans).

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of Swiss Chard
  • 1 small onion, cut
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 3-4 carrots,sliced
  • 3-4 celery stalks
  • 1/2 cup white wine (Pinot Grigio)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper – to taste
  • Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional

Directions

1. Using a large pan, sauté the onions, garlic and (optional) hot pepper flakes in 2-3 tbsp of olive oil.
