Swiss Chard with Almonds and Shallots

Here's a good winter side dish that serves two and is about as easy as they come.

Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons chopped shallot and saute 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 3 cups sliced Swiss chard (a tough leafy green that wilts like spinach when cooked). Cover and cook 2 minutes, until wilted.

Remove from heat and stir in 1/8 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. black pepper. Sprinkle with a teaspoon of slivered or sliced almonds - toast the nuts first, if you like.

This recipe will make 2, 1/2 cup servings of 50 calories.

Swiss chard $1.47
