Fennel and Chard With Parmesan

Fennel and Chard With Parmesan

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound thick-cut bacon, chopped
  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 pounds green Swiss chard, washed, drained, and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 medium size yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions

  • In a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crispy and fat has rendered, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the fennel, onion and chard stems and cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Add half the chard and cook until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining chard and continue to cook until all of the chard is wilted and tender 3 to 4 minutes longer. Add the parmesan and toss well.  Transfer to a plate and serve immediately.
