Healthy Creamed Swiss Chard Recipe


  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil

  3. 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  8. 1 large bunch green Swiss chard, washed thoroughly and roughly chopped


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and add olive oil. Heat through, and then add shallots and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add milk, nutmeg, salt, and pepper; raise heat to high and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
