Garlic-Sautéed Swiss Chard

June 6, 2018



In the last Hoosier Harvest 365 Bag, Swiss Chard was included.  Personally, I've never made Swiss Chard so this was a new adventure to me (and my family).  So I started the conquest of looking for a recipe that sounded good and was kid friendly.  I have a 9 & 8 year old so this can be a challenge sometimes!  On Pinterest, I found Sautéed Chard with Bacon and Tomatoes recipe that sounded fairly simple and good!  This recipe came from The Sophisticated Caveman on Pinterest.  I altered the recipe a little by adding more bacon.  Who doesn't love more bacon, right?!  


Sautéed Chard with Bacon and Tomatoes

  • 1 bunch rainbow chard leaves and stems separated and chopped

  • 3 strips bacon, chopped

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved

  • 1/2 onion diced

  • 1 garlic clove minced

  • one pinch sea salt

  • black pepper to taste

  1. Place the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat.

  2. Cook until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crisp.  Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

  3. Increase the heat to medium high and add the onion and chopped chard stalks to the skillet.  Cook until translucent, 6-7 minutes.

  4. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  5. Toss in the cherry tomatoes and sauté until blistered.

  6. Finally add the chard leaves, a pinch of salt, and black pepper to taste.  Cook until the leaves are wilted and tender, about 5 minutes.

  7. Garnish with the bacon. 

We added an egg and strawberries with this & that was our meal.  DELICIOUS!!!  Next time order the CHARD, BACON, EGG, and STRAWBERRIES from Hoosier Harvest Market and you have an easy meal and healthy meal.
