Rainbow Chard with Hazelnuts & Mushrooms
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
1/2 pound Chanterelle mushrooms (or another fresh wild mushroom)
1 large bunch of rainbow swiss chard
1/2 cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
2 1/2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
healthy pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 of a yellow onion, chopped
1/4 cup dry white wine
1. Use a dry towel to lightly brush clean the mushrooms. Chop the mushrooms into large chunks and set aside.
2. Slice the chard stems into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Slice the chard leaves into thin ribbons (this works best by stacking the leaves together, rolling them and thinly slicing.)
3. In a large heavy bottom skillet over medium heat toast the hazelnuts in 1/2 tablespoon of the butter, stirring often, until golden brown and fragrant. Use a slotted spoon to remove the nuts and set aside in a bowl.
4. Add the mushrooms, 1 tablespoon of the butter and a healthy pinch of salt and pepper to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl. Increase the heat to medium-high. Sauté the stems from the chard and the yellow onion in the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and another pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onion is golden and the stems are tender, about 12-15 minutes.
5. Stir in the chard leaves and 1/4 cup of wine. Cover the pan and cook, stirring often, just until wilted, about 3 minutes.Stir in the mushrooms and half of the nuts and keep on low heat for 1 minute longer; Transfer the salad to a platter and sprinkle with remaining nuts. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
