Braising is a French culinary technique where a main ingredient is first seared or browned in fat, and then simmered in a liquid over low heat in a covered pan. Try it with this simple side dish recipe made with swiss chard.


  • 1 pound Swiss chard, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once it begins to shimmer, add the chopped chard, garlic and the salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and then stir in the water. Cover the pan and cook for 6 minutes until chard is tender. Serve immediately.
