Directions

  1. Strip the leaves from the chard stems, and roughly chop.  Thinly slice the stems and keep separate from the leaves.  Set aside.
  2. Heat olive in a wide sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Add shallot slices and cook until they soften.  Add the chard stems and cook for 2 minutes or until the shallots turn golden and the chard stems have softened.
  3. Stir in the chard leaves. When they begin to wilt, add the peas, lima beans, radishes, and salt.  Sauté for 3 minutes if using fresh peas and beans or 1-2 minutes if using frozen.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl and mix in the mustard, chopped herbs, and lemon juice.  Taste for salt.  Serve warm or at room temperature as a side or over pasta.

Chef Tips

If you’re on a neutropenic or antimicrobial diet, add the herbs to the dish in step 3, along with the peas, lima beans and radishes.
