Chard recipes, please!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was given a huge amount of chard and it's going to go bad if I don't use it up ASAP.

 

I need vegetarian (preferably vegan or low-dairy) recipes, please. Soup? Stir-fry? Slow-cooker recipes are the best for me, but I'll take anything at this point.

 

THANK YOU!

I like chard fairly plain--- heat a tiny bit of oil in a cast iron, have your washed and chopped chard leaves ready (no need to shake water out) and fry them very fast, using tongs to stir them. Serve them hot with lime juice on top.  Like spinach, a large quantity cooks down a lot.

 

Unfortunately, I don't like reheated chard, so it's eat it up or compost the leftovers.

 

Provence has some recipes that use "Swiss" chard in interesting ways.  It would be worth looking that up.

Aside from adding it to soups, we like it very simply sauteed. Saute an onion and a few cloves of garlic in a little olive oil until golden brown, then add chopped chard (still wet from washing) and cover until it starts to wilt about. Season with salt or pepper. At the very end of cooking, add a dash of red wine vinegar for a little bite.

This is the go to recipe we give all of our Farmer's Market customers.  I make big batches of these Chard and Cheddar Enchiladas and freeze them for later.  It isn't slow cooker, but they freeze really well.
