Braised Swiss Chard

Broiling the onions adds a smoky flavor to this colorful side dish.


1 medium red onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick

1 Tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock


1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 pound red Swiss chard, stems removed, leaves washed, and sliced crosswire into one inch pieces

salt and pepper to taste

Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Line baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up. Place onion slices on baking sheet and brush with oil. Broil, turning often, until lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes.
Place a large skillet over a medium high heat. In a small bowl whisk together stock, honey and vinegar. Add to skillet along with Swiss chard and onions. Saute quickly, stirring constantly until chard is wilted and brightly colored, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
Serves: 6-8.
