Sautéed Swiss Chard

Swiss chard has a mild earthy flavor that's similar to beets (they're in the same family). And since the leaves are fairly tender they cook up in no time. Don't want to throw out the stalks? Dice them up and sauté them before adding the leaves to the pan.

Share Recipe





Choose Swiss chard with sturdy leaves and crisp stalks. Those with darker leaves and redder stalks will have stronger flavor.


Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.

Add chard a handful at a time, stirring after each addition until greens begin to wilt.

Stir in lemon juice, pepper flakes, and nutmeg. Cook chard until tender, about 5 minutes, then season with salt.
