  • Heat a large pan on medium-low heat for about 30 seconds.
  • Add enough oil to coat the bottom, and let heat up, about another minute.
  • Add the onions, garlic, and spices, let cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the ginger, swiss chard stems, and beans, and let cook for about another 2 minutes.
  • Add in the greens and cover, for 1-2 minutes. The greens will start to shrink and turn bright green.
  • Stir until the greens are uniformly bright green, and wilted, which should only take a couple of minutes. Don't overcook.
  • Remove from heat, add salt and black pepper to taste, and serve.
