Did I share with you how much I love swiss chard? I don’t know why, but it seems to be the only green, cooked vegetable (besides broccoli or collards) that I was able to tolerate a few years ago. Now I love all sorts of greens: spinach, kale, broccoli, you name it.
I’ve chosen swiss chard because it’s a fairly simple recipe and only takes a few minutes. This Swiss chard is known for being full of phytonutrients, antioxidants, and flavanoids. If you can get your kids to eat ’em, all the better!
I figure, why not add something green, healthy, and quick to the recipe.
Swiss chard is so super easy to make- and quick! My kids typically don’t like greens- but lately salads have been an in-thing for them. Although I still cant get them to love turnip greens, mustard greens, or spinach- I’ve found an alternative: easy swiss chard.
Here is my quick and easy Swiss Chard recipe!
Easy Swiss Chard Recipe
- 1 bunch of Swiss Chard
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/4 cup of water
- few dashes of pepper
- dash of salt to taste
- Rinse swiss chard gently with cold water, then chop as finely as desired. Chop garlic cloves.
- Place swiss chard into pan on medium and drizzle water over it. Add garlic cloves.
- Simmer until leaves wilt slightly, then top with olive oil.
- Toss in pan and add salt and pepper to taste.
Usually for my kids, they’ll eat them with a bit of garlic and red onion chopped in, and sauteed really soft.
Also, I thought you’d enjoy a follow-up video tutorial on how I make it.
