Garlic Creamed Chard

Our lightened, garlic-infused cream sauce is perfect with tender chard. Try this creamy dish alongside broiled New York strip steak.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound chard, stems and leaves separated, chopped (see Note)
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 4 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chard stems and cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chard leaves and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Cover and cook, stirring once, until tender, about 2 minutes more. Transfer to a colander placed in the sink and press with a wooden spoon to remove excess liquid. Return the chard to the pot, cover and keep warm.

Step 2

Place garlic and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until the garlic is fragrant but not browned, about 2 minutes. Whisk in flour and cook until bubbling, about 30 seconds. Add milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg; cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir the chard into the sauce and serve immediately.
