From Cathy Luchetti’s book, The Hot Flash Cookbook. The recipe intro says, “Chard is strong in flavor, rich in vitamin A and magnesium, and a tasty base for a sprinkling of sesame seeds.” The ingredients in the book call for “steamed rice or cooked pasta for serving” but that is not! So, please be advised that you’ll want to serve this over your carb of choice; mine is shiratake noodles.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toast sesame seeds: heat a dry skillet over high heat. Pour the seeds into the hot pan, shaking to turn. Toast for 3 to 5 minutes, or until slightly brown. Set aside.
  2. Boil water in a covered steamer or saucepan. Add greens and steam until just wilted, about 2 minutes. To preserve their bright color, immediately drizzle with the lemon juice.
  3. Serve over rice or pasta and garnish the sesame seeds and lemon pulp.
