• 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 2 bunches of chard
  • ½-1 lemon, juiced
  • ¼-½ cup kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
  • ¼ tsp sea salt, or to taste


Step 1
Heat olive oil in a large pot or skillet over medium heat. Add pine nuts and sauté until slightly golden, about 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds more.

Step 2
Then add wet greens and sauté until wilted and bright green, making sure all greens reach the heat, about 3-4 minutes.

Step 3
Remove from heat and add half of the lemon juice (add more if preferred), olives, and sea salt. Serve immediately.
