Blitva (Swiss Chard with Potatoes)


Found on Pinterest, this recipe was shared by Dan, who blogs on Platter Talk. This is a Croatian dish that features Swiss chard, one of the
dark, green leafy vegetables we’re all encouraged to eat more of. Dan suggests serving this dish with grilled fish, and it’s also delicious with grilled chicken.
Ingredients:
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ pieces
Kosher salt and freshly ground Black pepper to taste
1/3 cup Olive oil
6 cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
1 pound Swiss chard–tough stems removed, tender stems and leaves torn into 2″ pieces
juice from 1/2 fresh Lemon
Directions:
1. Boil potatoes in a 4-quart saucepan of salted water until tender, 5–7 minutes; drain and set aside.
2. Add oil to saucepan; place over medium-high heat.
3. Add garlic; cook until soft, 1–2 minutes.
4. Add potatoes; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 5–7 minutes.
5. Stir in Swiss chard, add lemon juice and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
