Our lightened, garlic-infused cream sauce is perfect with tender chard. Try this creamy dish alongside broiled New York strip steak.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound  chard, stems and leaves separated, chopped (see Note)
2 tablespoons  minced garlic
4 teaspoons  unsalted butter
4 teaspoons  all-purpose flour
2/3 cup  low-fat milk
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1/8 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon  ground nutmeg

Note: After washing the chard for these recipes, allow some of the water to cling to the leaves. It helps steam the chard and prevents a dry finished dish.

DIRECTIONS
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chard stems and cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chard leaves and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Cover and cook, stirring once, until tender, about 2 minutes more. Transfer to a colander placed in the sink and press with a wooden spoon to remove excess liquid. Return the chard to the pot, cover and keep warm.


Place garlic and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until the garlic is fragrant but not browned, about 2 minutes. Whisk in flour and cook until bubbling, about 30 seconds. Add milk, salt, pepper and nutmeg; cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir the chard into the sauce and serve immediately.
