I have been blessed with a great supply of fresh Swiss chard from my friend’s garden this summer and fall. I have eaten more chard in one summer than I have in my entire life! I am in love with it and this is by far my favorite way to fix it.
Swiss chard is yet another beneficial green that we should incorporate regularly. Each green has a unique nutritional profile.
Swiss chard has been found to contain at least 13 different antioxidants in the leaves. The steps are full of betalains, a unique pigment (also found in beets) that have more antioxidant effects.
In addition to antioxidants Swiss chard is a great source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium, and more. Read more about the awesomeness of chard here.
Sautéed Chard with Onions and Garlic
- 1 bunch fresh Swiss chard (approx. 15-18 leaves), washed and chopped into smaller pieces
- 1 small sweet onion
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- olive oil (optional)
- apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar or lemon juice (optional)
In a large sauté pan over medium heat, combine coconut oil, onions and garlic and sauté until the onions are slightly browned. Add the chopped chard and turn heat to medium-low. Cover with a lid and let the chard wilt, and then stir it into the onions and garlic. Serve as is, or I like to add a drizzle of olive oil and a splash of apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar for a little extra zip.
This side dish goes great with a grass-fed top sirloin!
