Beans, Gnocchi, and Swiss Chard

I’ve already blogged about making this dish, but I’ve decide to type up my own version of the recipe, as adapted from the original:

    2 tablespoons of olive oil
    1 teaspoon of minced garlic
    3 shallots, minced
    Swiss chard, leaves cut into strips and stems cut into small pieces
    1/2 cup of water
    1 cube of vegetable bouillon
    1 15-oz. can of beans

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Add the garlic, shallots, and chard stems and cook until they start to soften.

Add the chard leaves in three or four bunches and cook until they start to wilt.

Add the water and the vegetable bouillon and cook for a few minutes.

Add the beans and cook for a few more minutes.

While you are doing the above, cook the gnocchi in boiling water until they float to the top of the pan.

When the gnocchi are done cooking pour them into a strainer and let all of the water drain away.

Transfer the other ingredients from the skillet to the strainer, mix them and the gnocchi together, and let all of the liquid drain away.
