Ingredients

  • 2 sheets puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 Pound Swiss chard, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup halved or roughly chopped unsalted cashews
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

On a floured cutting board, lay out the puff pastry and cut into 2 ½- to 3-inch squares and lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

In a frying pan, sauté the Swiss chard in a little olive oil. After about 2 minutes, add in the cashews. Season with salt and pepper to taste. When the chard is soft, dollop a spoonful of chard mix onto the center of each puff pastry square.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the puff pastry "puffs" and turns golden. Serve warm.
