RECIPE: A simple way to prepare chard or kale or any other leafy Spring green. Start chopping the stem ends of the bunch, cutting them small and then getting bigger as you move up into the leaves. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add some olive oil.Add in the chard and a generous pinch of salt. Let it all wilt, stirring it just enough to get the top leaves to the bottom. Add in a touch of water if it seems a bit too dry. Meanwhile, chop up a couple garlic cloves. Cook for about 10 minutes and taste for tenderness ---add any extra salt, oil or water if needed. Once tender, move the greens to the side of the pan, and toss the garlic and a pinch of red pepper flakes into the center of the pan, adding a splash of oil if the pan is dry. Once the garlic smells delicious, stir the greens back into the garlic and serve.
