Sauteed Rainbow Chard with Golden Raisins and Pine Nuts

An easy side dish full of nutrients




  1. Thoroughly wash and dry your chard.  Use a knife to remove the tough ends and reserve for another use.  {I recently learned that you can actually EAT these.  Dumb me threw them away!}  Chop your chard into small pieces.  Isn’t rainbow chard pretty?
  2. In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Add your chard and saute until it is wilted.  Meanwhile, dry toast the pine nuts in a small pan over medium heat.  Just shake them around for a few minutes until they start to brown.  Be careful-they can go from browned to burnt quickly!  (If you are using almonds, do the same thing)  Add the pine nuts and the raisins to the chard and stir until thoroughly heated.  Serve immediately.
