Sauteed Swiss Chard

SAVE ✓ SAVED ADD TO MEAL PLAN PRINT

We would love to see families using more greens in their everyday cooking. Swiss chard may not be as familiar to people as collards or kale so we hope you will give it a try. Chard is related to beets and the stems can be eaten, in addition to the green tops. This recipe is a simple saute that can be cooked up quickly for a flavorful veggie side dish. You can also add any leftover sauteed chard to your eggs for breakfast!
