Swiss Chard with Garlic and Pine Nuts

Copyright 2007, Robin Miller: Quick Fix Meals

1/4 cup pine nuts
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
8 cups chopped Swiss chard leaves (cut away all thick stems)
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place the pine nuts in a large, dry skillet, set over medium heat, and toast until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes, shaking the pan frequently; watch them carefully--then can go from toasty to burned in the time it takes to answer the phone. Remove the nuts from the pan and set aside.

Heat the oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, for 1 minutes. Add the Swiss chard and soy sauce, cover, and steam until the leaves wilt, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with the pine nuts just before serving.
