Swiss Chard with Mushrooms and Peppers

This was the first time I have eaten swiss chard. I am trying to eat more vegetables, greens specifically. I loved it! I will be making swiss chard again! I had it along side roasted tilapia and fettuccine alfredo.

Swiss Chard with Mushrooms and Peppers
2 bunches swiss chard, washed
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 package of pre sliced mushrooms
1/2 onion, diced
salt and pepper

Remove stems from swiss chard. Slice thin. Set aside. Slice the swiss chard leaves and set aside. Heat a pot over medium high heat. Add the olive oil. Saute the stems, peppers, garlic, onion, mushroom, salt and pepper to taste. When all the liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes, add the leaves, cover for 5 minutes. Stir for 3-5 min, until leaves are wilted. The leaves could wilt quicker, depending on the size of pot you use.
