Sautéed Swiss Chard

Jessica Chou

Sautéed Swiss chard is pretty much the easiest thing you can make, ever. Toss in some garlic and olive oil, add in the stems and leaves, zest a little lemon, and you're done. A little Parmesan never hurts, either.

Swiss Chard and Shiitake Mushroom Risotto

The earthy flavor of shiitake mushrooms infuses this risotto as it cooks, and gently cooked rainbow chard stems brighten up the dish just before serving.

Swiss Chard and Sausage with Polenta

Anne Dolce

Swiss chard and sausage — it rolls off your tongue just as easy as it slides off the fork. This recipe is simple in nature but the sauce is made with deliberate steps (browning, deglazing with red wine, aromatics) to have a bold depth in flavor. It's the perfect bath for the Swiss chard and sausage to soak in, and the cheesy polenta is just the icing on the cake.

Swiss Chard Tzatziki

Nathan Cyphert

I've been on a Greek yogurt kick lately. I love traditional tzatziki with cucumber but wanted to try something a little different. The Swiss chard delivers a slightly different texture (almost like spinach dip) and some added health benefits.
