Braised Chard
1 bunch swiss chard chopped
1 onion, chopped fine
2 tspns paprika
1 tspn cumin powder
1/4 cup or so of cilantro chopped
1/2 cup white wine or water
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tspn salt
ground black pepper
2 tblspns olive oil or other fat (goose etc.)

Normally, with chard, you often have to treat the leaves differently from
the stems. Not here, though. Put everything together into a covered dutch
oven or stock pot over medium heat. Let it all boil together, making sure
there is enough liquid, for about 45 minutes. This is fabulously rich.
Serves 4 with a large chard bunch.

My own recipe is similar to this one with the exception of the seasonings
and larger pieces of onion. I use a pinch or two of nutmeg and dry mustard
with the cumin and simmer about 20 minutes in broth, (either chicken or
beef) depends which one I have or the proverbial bone stock. I make most
greens this way. I vary the seasonings and cooking times to suit the taste
and veggie.
