Here's an easy, quick and savory recipe for Swiss chard from zany, excellent Chef Anne Burrell. It's one of my favorites! Chard is one of the super leafy greens packed with minerals and vitamins as well as a healthy dose of fiber. It tastes a lot like spinach with a slightly stronger taste, depending on the cooking method. Use regular olive oil, not virgin, for best flavor. Reduce the amount of bacon if desired.

Recipe Ingredients for Sauteed Swiss Chard With Bacon

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 pound bacon, diced
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 pound swiss chard, stems removed and cut into 1/2-inch lengths, leaves cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock
1 kosher salt to taste

Recipe Directions for Sauteed Swiss Chard With Bacon

  1. Coat a large saute pan lightly with olive oil and add the diced bacon, garlic, and crushed red pepper.

  2. Bring the pan to medium-high heat. When the garlic has turned a lovely golden brown, remove from the pan and discard.

  3. At this point the bacon should start to become brown and crispy. Add the Swiss chard stems and the stock and cook until the stock has mostly evaporated.

  4. Add the Swiss chard leaves and saute until they are wilted. Season with salt and serve.
