Play your chards right, and you'll have a side dish that'll leave your guests begging for more. Simple to prepare, the taste is second to none.
At a glance
1 bunch chard leaves, stems chopped and cooked with the leaves
1 (8 oz.) pkg. reduced-fat cream cheese
1 tbsp. butter or olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp. lemon pepper
3 dashes fresh nutmeg, grated
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Simmer the chopped chard. Meanwhile, finely chop the onion and garlic and sauté them in the oil. Lower the heat, add the chard, the cream cheese and the seasonings and stir until the cream cheese melts. Turn the mixture into a microwaveable - or ovenproof dish and top with the Parmesan cheese. Heat in microwave until cheese melts and serve.
