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. Swiss Chard should be chopped into pieces about 2" square.
  2. Heat oil in a wok or skillet.
  3. Saute garlic for about 1 minute.
  4. Have high heat and saute the swiss chard for about2-3 minutes. (Water clinging to the leaves is enough liquid to cook the chard).
  5. Toss (do not over cook) until just wilted and getting soft.
  6. 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!!!
