So, I have to admit that this “recipe” doesn’t feel very recipe-ish to me. Wilting swiss chard seems like cheating to me or too easy, but recently I shared my undying love for chard as my breakfast green of champions on Instagram and I learned that many of you are feeling intimidated by this green. I got lots of comments that were either, “I’m afraid this will taste bad” or “I’m afraid to prepare chard.” Well, first of all, it tastes awesome! And second of all, it could seriously not be easier to make it. This honestly takes about 10 minutes. Here we go!
- Heat oil in a large pot over medium-low heat (I use a pot because it's easier to get all the chard in there before it wilts).
- Add garlic, cook and stir just until fragrant.
- Add chard and lemon juice, stir to coat chard with garlic and lemon juice.
- Cover pot, and steam until wilted, about 4-6 minutes.
- Remove from heat, uncover, sprinkle with salt and serve warm.
