Sauteed Swiss Chard with Garlic

I found this recipe on Simply Recipes. I’ve only made Swiss chard once before, when I tried out Blue Apron for several weeks. It’s very hearty!


  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, stems and leaves chopped into 1-inch chunks, divided
  • 1 T olive oil
  • Salt
  • A dash of red pepper flakes
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced


  1. Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add the olive oil and garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add the Swiss chard stems and cook 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the leaves and cook for 3 more minutes, or until leaves have slightly wilted.
