I say "new way", but someone had to dream it up--I love Allrecipes.com and when I'm trying to find a different way to prepare a veggie that's the first place I look. This recipe is Baked Swiss Chard with Feta Cheese and actually I bought some feta cheese last trip to the grocery store. So, here goes:
1 bunch of Swiss Chard, stems and leaves separated
1 onion, chopped
4 large garlic cloves (I added this part and left them whole)
1 TBS olive oil
salt and pepper
2 TBS olive oil
4 oz crumbled feta cheese
Wash the swiss chard and tear the stems out of the leaves; put these in a bowl with chopped onion, peeled garlic cloves, and toss with 1 TBS olive oil. Place on an oiled baking sheet in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until onion is starting to brown.
Toss the leaves in the 2 TBS olive oil (I only used 1 TBS here) and salt and pepper to taste. Careful with the salt; the cheese is pretty salty in itself......Place the leaves on top of the stems and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese (I only used 2 ounces instead of 4) and put the pan back in the oven for 15-20 minutes longer,
or until some of the leaves are starting to get crispy on the edges.
