"Here's an easy, quick and savory recipe for Swiss chard from zany, excellent Chef Anne Burrell. It's one of my favorites! Chard is one of the super leafy greens packed with minerals and vitamins as well as a healthy dose of fiber. It tastes a lot like spinach with a slightly stronger taste, depending on the cooking method. Use regular olive oil, not virgin, for best flavor. Reduce the amount of bacon if desired."

"So good ya'll! These are some of the best greens I've had and definitely the best I've ever cooked! Totally satisfies my southern comfort food craving! I had it with Teese Mac & Cheese (Vegan) (#388404) and Healthy Cumber-Tomato Salad (#28662). What a perfect low cal meal! I would add about 60 calories though per serving to account for the bacon & chicken stock though for a whopping 80 calories per serving. Delicious and healthy! Can't beat that with a stick!"
"Yummy!! Just like my grandmother use to make when we were young. she was always pushing vegetables on us. My grandfather always had a great garden, so we had so many fresh vegetables to choose from. Thanks for sharing this recipe."
"This was great. Only thing I changed was substituting 1/2 cup pancetta for the bacon. Awesome!"
"This was great! I do something similar with kale in the winter. Used rainbow chard since it looked so great at the store. I also left the garlic chunks in the pan as a little treat- they didn't burn because of the chicken stock. By the time the stock was gone, the stems and leaves were perfectly tender. This only served two, but we can be rather greedy with our vegetables. Delicious, thanks!"
