Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese


* 2 Tbsp butter
* 2 Tbsp olive oil
* 1 Tbsp minced garlic
* 1/2 small red onion, diced
* 1 bunch Swiss chard, stems and center ribs cut out and chopped together, leaves
coarsely chopped separately
* 1/2 cup dry white wine
* 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, or to taste
* 2 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
* salt to taste (optional)



# Melt butter and olive oil together in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic and onion, and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the chard stems and the white wine. Simmer until the stems begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chard leaves, and cook until wilted. Finally, stir in lemon juice and Parmesan cheese; season to taste with salt if needed.
