Chard with Shallots, Pancetta & Walnuts

For this simple sautéed chard, flavored with rich-tasting pancetta and walnuts, we prefer the milder taste of green chard.

Serves 6

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 thin slice pancetta, (1 1/2 ounces), diced (see Tip)
  • 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound chard, stems and leaves separated, chopped (see Note)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tip)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Cook pancetta in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring, until it begins to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.

Step 2

Add shallots, chard stems and thyme to the pan drippings and cook, stirring, until the shallots begin to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add chard leaves, water and lemon juice and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Cover and cook until tender, 2 to 4 minutes more. Remove from the heat; stir in the pancetta, walnuts and pepper.
