The newest addition to my cookware collection is the Cookplus Vitamin 11-inch Wok from Lock&Lock. This aluminum wok has a vibrant red exterior and a non-stick interior coating. It is pretty light, but also seems quite durable. I decided to test it out with a sauteed dish – Swiss Chard With Apples.
I found the interior surface of the wok to be interesting. The surface is embossed for energy efficiency. The wok heated up very well and was great to use. However, due to the coating, it’s best not to use metal kitchen utensils on it because that will damage the quality of the wok. Wooden or silicone spatulas are the way to go. Personally, I’m a fan of those heat resistant silicone spatulas. The wok was also very easy to clean, which is always a convenient.
Sauteed Swiss Chard With Apples
- 1 large bunch of Swiss chard
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 pieces of garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp whole mustard seeds
- 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 large apple, diced
- Prepare the Swiss chard by separating the center steam from the leaves. Slice the stems into 1/2 inch pieces. Slice the leaves into 1 inch strips.
- Heat the olive oil in the wok over a medium high heat.
- Add garlic, mustard seeds.
- When you notice the mustard seeds starting to pop, add the Swiss chard steams.
- Sautee and stir for a few minutes.
- Lower the heat.
- Add the chopped apples and the Swiss chard greens.
- Add the apple cider vinegar.
- Continue to cook, stirring often, until the greens are just wilted and softened, and the apples be a bit tender.
The taste of Swiss chard and apples goes together really well. The apples add a nice sweetness to the dish. The dish is light, crunchy, and makes a delicious vegetable side. Enjoy!
