Swiss chard is one of those power greens like spinach and kale. Loaded with vitamin A, K and C as well as dietary fiber, iron, potassium, and magnesium, It is in the same same family as beets, spinach, and quinoa. To me, the taste of cooked Swiss chard is very similar to spinach. Raw, it is bitter like kale and can be chopped up and added to salads. You might also find it labeled as silverbeet or strawberry spinach.
This easy recipe is delicious and comes together quickly. Sautéed Swiss Chard is a great side dish for any meal, but it is fantastic all on its own. A big bowl for lunch on a cold day makes me very happy.
You will need five pounds of Swiss chard for this recipe. When chopped, you should have about sixteen to twenty cups of roughly chopped chard. It seems like a lot, but it will cook down to a fraction of what you started with.
