  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely diced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 small dried hot red chile, such as chile de arbol, stemmed and crumbled
  • 2 pounds Swiss chard (3 to 4 bunches), stems removed, torn into 2-inch pieces (about 12 packed cups)
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Coarse salt


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, ginger, and chile and cook until tender and fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Add chard leaves, coconut milk, and water. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until chard is tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt.
