Stir fried swiss chard was an improvisation - I had a big bunch of Swiss Chard in my CSA box, along with some garlic, and I had a chinese themed meal planned. Voila! Since I have my stir fry technique internalized, this was a quick side dish that I put together while I was making my chinese barbecued pork.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion
- 1 bunch Swiss Chard, leaves trimmed from stems
- ⅓ cup water
- 1tbsp garlic
- 1tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
*"Stir fry 2-3 minutes" - When you first add something to the pan, toss it to get it coated with the oil, then let it sit for 30sec to 1 min, or until it starts to brown on the underside. Then, keep it moving, flipping and stirring until it is crisp-tender.
