Chard with Green Olives, Currants & Goat Cheese

From: EatingWell

Tangy green olives, sweet currants and creamy goat cheese turn chard into a sophisticated treat, just right paired with lamb chops.

Servings: 6 servings, about 2/3 cup each
Prep: 20 mins
Total: 20 mins
Rated : 
 by 1 person
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound  chard, stems and leaves separated, chopped (see Note)
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup  chopped pitted green olives
1/4 cup  currants
1/2 cup  crumbled goat cheese, (2 ounces)
1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chard stems, salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chard leaves and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in olives and currants. Dot goat cheese over the top, cover and cook until the chard is tender and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes more.
After washing the chard for these recipes, allow some of the water to cling to the leaves. It helps steam the chard and prevents a dry finished dish.
