Spicy Chard with Ginger


Enjoy this saute as a side, toss with pasta for a main course (it's great with Asian noodles), or serve on crostini.


  • 1 bunch Swiss chard

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger

  • 2 sliced jalapenos

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Separate stems and leaves from Swiss chard. Chop leaves and dice stems small. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add chard stems, minced peeled fresh ginger, and jalapeno slices; cook until stems soften, 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add chard leaves, cover, and cook until wilted, 3 minutes. Uncover and cook until tender, 4 minutes.
