Greens Marmalade

My YJ Recipes



At Axe Restaurant in Los Angeles, this flavorful spread is served with grilled flatbread and roasted vegetables.


Makes 3 cups.

1/2 cup olive oil
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 small garlic clove, chopped
1 bunch washed Swiss chard, leaves and stems torn into bite-sized pieces
1 bunch washed kale, leaves and stems torn into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup capers
1 to 1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup toasted, chopped walnut pieces
1 teaspoon salt


1. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a frying pan large enough to hold all the ingredients. Add the onion and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until it starts to brown, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook briefly (don't let it burn), and then add the shredded chard and kale.

2. Cook for a few minutes until the greens reduce in size. Add raisins, capers, and just enough water to cover the greens. Cover the pan and cook until the liquid is almost gone, about 10 to 15 minutes. Taste and add salt as needed.

3. Spread the greens mixture on a sheet pan to cool.

4. Once cooled, transfer to a cutting board and add the walnuts. Chop roughly to make a chunky relish, or more finely to make a spreadable mixture. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
