Separate the chard leaves from the stems and then cut the stems into batons and coarsely shred the leaves.
Add the lemon juice and zest, crushed garlic and water to a shallow pan. Bring up to the boil and the add the chard stems. Cover and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes or until the stems are tender. Check every now and again and add a little more water if it looks too dry.
Add the shredded leaves and raisins, replace the lid and continue cooking until the leaves have wilted. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Spoon into a serving dish and scatter with the toasted pine nuts.
