Sunflower Seed Swiss Chard Recipe

With this dish, the most critical element is timing. The various ingredients require very little cooking time, and once cooked should not be allowed to sit while you set the table. If you want everything to taste fresh and crisp, prepare your table and pour the drinks first . . . then start cooking.

Ingredients:

1 pound of fresh chard
1/4 cup of margarine or butter
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup of shelled sunflower seeds
1 pound of fresh mushrooms, washed and sliced salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups of grated cheese (cheddar, Jack, Swiss, Parmesan or any combination thereof)

Instructions:

Wash the chard and cut the green parts of the leaves from the central white shafts, then pack the greens into a steamer or a good-sized pan that contains a little water. Chop the white part of the chard.
