Yields: 2 servings
4-6 Beets with greens
1 bunch Swiss chard
3 T. butter
Salt and pepper
2 T. white wine (Muscadet is my preference)
2 T. water
1/2 pounds Bucheron Cheese (room temperature)
Crusty peasant style bread (warmed in oven)
1. Scrub and peel the beets. Remove the greens and chop coarsely. Set the greens aside in a large prep bowl.
2. Slice beets into 1/4 inch rounds.
3. Remove the ribs from the swiss chard and coarsely chop and toss into bowl with the beet greens.
4. In a large sauté pan, melt butter. Sauté shallots. Add beet rounds to the shallot butter mixture. Crack some pepper over the beets and a toss on a pinch of salt. Reduce heat and sauté beets, turning over to ensure even cooking.
5. About 15 minutes later when beets are beginning to glaze and become tender, add greens and chard. Sauté for about 5 minutes, then add wine and cover. Cook until greens are wilted, adding water if necessary. Allow liquid to be mostly absorbed into greens, adjust seasonings.
6. Scoop greens and beets into a low shallow bowl. Garnish with a sizeable wedge of bucheron and some crusty bread. Crack a little bit of pepper over the entire dish.
