Serves: 2 to 4
Ingredients
  • 2 bunch of swiss chard (I used rainbow)
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ onion, sliced or chopped
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, minced (divided)
  • 2 teaspoons of chicken or vegetable bouillon flavoring*
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 to 4 small potatoes, cooked, peeled, and cubed
Instructions
  1. Clean swish chard by removing tough parts of bottom stem (if needed)
  2. Chop swiss chard stems and leafs and then wash and drain
  3. In a large saute pan, add 4 tablespoons olive oil and then add onion and cover.
  4. Cook onions for about 15 minutes or until tender
  5. In the meantime, cook the potatoes (I microwaved mine for about 6 minutes then peeled and chopped them)
  6. Add 1 clove of chopped garlic and the chopped swiss chard. Cover and cook over medium low heat for about 40 minutes or until tender (the stems take a while to become tender)
  7. The greens will release a lot of water, but most of it will eventually cook off
  8. Add half a cup of water after about 30 minutes of cooking the greens to help the greens become more tender
  9. About 5 to 10 minutes before the greens are done, add the chicken bouillon powder, the other clove of minced garlic, and the red pepper flakes and stir to combine
  10. Continue cooking, uncovered, until most of the liquid is absorbed
  11. Add the potatoes and continue cooking until heated through (about 1 to 2 minutes)
Notes
I'm wondering how this replacement for chicken bouillon would taste
