I never tried cooking Swiss chard until today! I got these from farmer’s market that has been freshly picked. I heard the freshly picked and cooked your Swiss chard, the tastier it is.

1 large bunch of fresh Swiss chard
1 small clove garlic, sliced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp water (if needed)
Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon butter (I skipped the butter!)

  • Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Roughly chop into inch-wide strips. Remove the toughest third of the stalk, discard.
  • Heat a saucepan on a medium heat setting, add olive oil, a few small slices of garlic and the crushed red pepper. Sauté for about a minute.
  • Add the chopped Swiss chard leaves. Cover.
  • Check after about 5 minutes. If it looks dry, add a couple tablespoons of water.
  • Flip the leaves over in the pan, so that what was on the bottom, is now on the top. Cover again.
  • Check for doneness after another 5 minutes (remove a piece and taste it).
  • Add salt to taste, and a small amount of butter (optional). Remove the swiss chard to a serving dish.
