Recipes–Sautéed Swiss Chard With Sherry And Portobello Mushrooms

Swiss chard doesn’t always have much taste – or at least compared with my favorite, collard greens, or kale – but with a few additions, the vegetable can be tasty and appetizing

. Swiss chard

Dried mushrooms are a great ingredient to have in the cupboard. I use them for a quick garbanzo bean salad, in vegetable soups, and tomato sauce pasta dishes.  They are that small addition – like fish sauce – which gives zip and surprising flavor to many dishes.
