Oil Free Braised Greens Recipe
1 bunch greens (Swiss chard is my favorite)
1 small onion
Spices (salt, pepper, garlic & harissa are my preferences)
Prep your ingredients. Slice the onion in thin strips. Halve your lemon. Cut the Swiss chard stems off about half way up the stalk. Slice the rest of the chard (including stems) in thin ribbons and wash in a colander.
Warm your pan (non-stick if you have it) on medium heat. When you can feel warmth in the pan throw in the onions in a single layer (top left). Let them sit for a few minutes, then squeeze your lemon over top. Stir the onion and scrape any brown bits from the pan. When your onions look like the right picture, add your sliced chard.
Add half your chard on top of the onions and then top with your spices. Your chard will likely still be wet from washing, if not, add a splash of water. Stir in the chard with the onions until it wilts. Add the second half and repeat. These get better as they cook. Cook for at least 5 more minutes after all the chard has wilted.
