Swiss chard is often overlooked while we all buy spinach and kale instead. While spinach and kale are wonderful greens which belong on our tables, Swiss chard is equally wonderful, full of nutritional value, and flavorful! Today I have for you a roundup of several different recipes which will help answer the question – ‘how do you cook Swiss chard?’ and do so with taste and style.
The quickest and easiest way to cook Swiss chard is the saute. Chop up your chard, add some oil to the pan, add a few aromatics (onion, garlic, hot pepper, etc.), and cook it until it is tender. Tasty and easy! There are a lot of recipes out there for the basic saute and a lot of roundups.
This is not that roundup.
Today’s Swiss chard recipe roundup brings us beyond the saute to show you all sorts of creative and interesting ways to enjoy chard. Wraps, pies, salad, gratin, and more! Swiss chard is a versatile green which belongs on your dinner table more often.
