Ingredients

  • 2 bunch of swiss chard (I used rainbow)
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 onion , sliced or chopped
  • 2 small cloves of garlic , minced (divided)
  • 2 teaspoons of chicken or vegetable bouillon flavoring*
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 to 4 small potatoes , cooked, peeled, and cubed

Instructions

  • Clean swish chard by removing tough parts of bottom stem (if needed)
  • Chop swiss chard stems and leafs and then wash and drain
  • In a large saute pan, add 4 tablespoons olive oil and then add onion and cover.
  • Cook onions for about 15 minutes or until tender
  • In the meantime, cook the potatoes (I microwaved mine for about 6 minutes then peeled and chopped them)
  • 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)
  • The greens will release a lot of water, but most of it will eventually cook off
  • Add half a cup of water after about 30 minutes of cooking the greens to help the greens become more tender
  • 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
  • Continue cooking, uncovered, until most of the liquid is absorbed
  • 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
