Good morning.  Did you sleep well?

I pray you have the most productive day today.

Have you ever cooked Chard?  Do you know what chard is?  It is a green leafy vegetable,  kind of like spinach.  You can chop the stalks and eat them as well.

This is one of those vegetables that is not something I ate growing up.  I like to try new things, and since I need to keep to a limited food circle, when there IS something new I can have, I jump at the chance.

Chard can be a great side to any meal.  It is super versatile, and has great flavor all on its own.

I made it very simply with some garlic and white wine.  How do you like to make your chard?

Wash the chard well to get off any sand or dirt
chop stems of chard
Chop the stems separate from the leaves
garlic for chard
Cook the garlic and seasonings in oil
cook stems first chard
Add in the chard stems to cook first
add wine to chard stems
Deglaze the pan with white wine
add chard leaves on top to steam in wine
Add in the chard leaves
wilted chard after wine
Perfect green side for any dish


  • 1 bunch chard, washed, leaves separated from the stems
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 3/4 tsp seasoned salt mix
  • pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 Tbsp white wine

Heat oil in pan, add garlic, salt mix, and pepper.

Chop the chard stems, add to the pan once the garlic is fragrant and just starting to brown.  Mix well, cook 5-7 minutes.

Add in wine, reduce by 1/2.  

Now add in the cut up leaves from the chard.  Cover, cook 3-4 minutes, until the chard leaves have wilted.

Mix well, season with more salt if needed.
