  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the red pepper, garlic, and portobello mushrooms. Cook and stir until the mushroom has softened and begun to release its liquid, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the leek, and continue cooking until the leek has softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the chicken broth and Swiss chard. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover, and simmer until the chard leaves have wilted, about 10 minutes. Remove the lid, and continue cooking until the chard is tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese; let stand until melted.

Nice flavor- used my own garlic, leek and swiss chard- I do agree the parm cheese really should be 2 tablespoons- I also added white wine when I added the leeks- mushrooms seemed a little dry and then when I was cooking the chard I also added some wine to the chicken stock- came out great!

Swiss chard is one of my favorite vegetables. I love it. It's a delicately flavored green, sweeter than most. It needs little more than a bit of garlic and some olive oil. Bacon is good too. But I was willing to try something different, and I do love mushrooms of any kind. But neither Hubs nor I much cared for this, both of us agreeing the Swiss Chard totally got lost in the more potent flavor of the mushrooms.

So I didn't have portobello mushrooms so I simply used canned pieces & stems. AND I forgot to add any Parmesan! (the 2 cups of cheese obviously has to be an error - MAYBE 2 TBSP would be appropropriate. Anyway, it was delicious - even my husband liked it and said I could make it again even though he hates Chard.

Great way to cook chard! I used vegetable broth to make this a vegetarian dish and it turned out great!

I have now made this three times, combined this with a similar recipe, I used whie wine instead of broth... Just Amazing. My 16yr old went back for seconds and thirds.

I think this needs a little more swiss chard and maybe drain the fat. A yummy way of making swiss chard!
