Spicy Swiss Chard, Apples with Raw Farm Goat Cheese


  • 1 large bunch of fresh Swiss chard
  • 2 oz. shaved raw aged goat cheese ** Cranberry Ridge Farm
  • 1/2 peeled sliced apples
  • 1 small clove garlic, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons
  • Salt


1 Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Remove the toughest third of the stalk, discard or save for juicing. Roughly chop the leaves into inch-wide strips. Peel and slice into small pieces, a granny smith or other apple.

2 Heat a saucepan on a medium heat setting, add olive oil, a few small slices of garlic and the crushed red pepper. Sauté for about a minute. Add the chopped Swiss chard leaves and apple slices. Cover. Check after about 5 minutes. If it looks dry, add a couple tablespoons of water. Flip the leaves  and apples over in the pan, so that what was on the bottom, is now on the top. Cover again. Check for doneness after another 5 minutes (remove a piece and taste it). Add salt to taste, and a small amount of butter. Remove the swiss chard and apples  to a serving dish and top with shaved raw farm goat cheese **Cranberry Ridge Farm
