Sauteed Chard with Lemon, Garlic and Shallots

Chard is an under rated vegetable.  It’s one of those vegetables that doesn’t get it’s due.  Probably because it has to contend with other vegetables that hog the spotlight, like kale, broccoli, and cauliflower.  I think that if more people knew how easy it is to cook chard, and how delicious it is, it would be a star in their dinner line up.  This recipe for chard is one of my favorite chard recipes.  It’s super easy, quick, and oh so delicious!

1 bushel of chard about 4 cups chopped roughly

1 medium shallot sliced thinly

4 small cloves of garlic

1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, more if you’re so inclined

2 tablespoons of cooking oil

sea salt to taste

Directions:  Heat the oil along with the garlic and shallots over medium heat.



Cook the shallots and garlic until shallots turn translucent, about 1-2 minutes.


Add in the chopped chard, season with sea salt and saute until wilted.





Turn the fire off and add lemon juice, toss then serve.  Yup that easy! AND So, so , so delicious!!

  1. It was the first time I made something of chard. It was so good, I was really worried how my family would react, but it simply worked out great. I didn’t change anything, just added lemon grass which just added to the taste. Will make it again, thanks for sharing.
