Swiss Chard is not a common veggie in most of North America. It is very rich in iron.Some people say you need to acquire a taste for it. It is rather like strong cabbage. Very low calorie
- 1 lb red swiss chard, washed, bottom stem removed, coarsely chopped
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons lite olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Swiss Chard should be chopped into pieces about 2" square.
- Heat oil in a wok or skillet.
- Saute garlic for about 1 minute.
- Have high heat and saute the swiss chard for about2-3 minutes. (Water clinging to the leaves is enough liquid to cook the chard).
- Toss (do not over cook) until just wilted and getting soft.
- Season with pepper and serve.
My Italian grandmother would be very pleased with you. Swiss Chard was a staple on her table, and your recipe is a dead-ringer for hers. Buon appetito!
I don't know why but I have never cooked swiss chard. Well that has changed now. This was simple, easy, fast and tasty. It went well with the barley casserole by Barbara Mooers I served. Thanks again Bergy!!!
Great way to do swiss chard. We really enjoyed this -- very simple.
