Sered Rainbow Chard with Leeks

  • 2 bunches Rainbow Chard leaves or 2 bunches Red and Green Swiss Chard
  • 3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 large Leeks, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices (white and pale green parts only)
  • 3/4 teaspoons fine sea salt
  1. Cut stems from chard (if leaves are large, cut out course portions of rib), then cut stems crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  2. Stack chard leaves and roll into cylinders. Cut cylinders crosswise to make 1-inch-thick strips of leaves.
  3. Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then saute chard stems and leeks with sea salt and pepper to taste, stirring occasionally, until slightly soft, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add chard leaves and continue to saute, stirring frequently, until wilted. (If greens begin to brown before they wilt, sprinkle with a few drops of water.)
