From simplyrecipes.com Can add a small amount (1 teaspoon) butter along with the salt at the end but I didn't think it needed it. I've also used broth (chicken, vegetable, or beef -- whatever I had open) instead of water.

Recipe Ingredients for Swiss Chard

8 leaves chard, swiss (large bunch)
1 clove garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water
1 pinch crushed red pepper
1 salt to taste

Recipe Directions for Swiss Chard

  1. Rinse the leaves thoroughly. Remove the toughest third of the stalk. Roughly chop the leaves into 1-inch strips.

  2. Heat a pan on medium heat, add oil, garlic and crushed pepper. Saute for about a minute. Add the Swiss chard leaves. Cover. Check after about 5 minutes. If it looks dry, add a couple tablespoons of water. Flip the leaves over in the pan, so that what was on the bottom, it now on the top. Cover again. Check for doneness after another 5 minutes.

  3. Add salt to taste and a small amount of butter, if desired.
