“Here's an easy, quick and savory recipe for Swiss chard from zany, excellent Chef Anne Burrell. It's one of my favorites! Chard is one of the super leafy greens packed with minerals and vitamins as well as a healthy dose of fiber. It tastes a lot like spinach with a slightly stronger taste, depending on the cooking method. Use regular olive oil, not virgin, for best flavor. Reduce the amount of bacon if desired.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat a large saute pan lightly with olive oil and add the diced bacon, garlic, and crushed red pepper.
  2. Bring the pan to medium-high heat. When the garlic has turned a lovely golden brown, remove from the pan and discard.
  3. At this point the bacon should start to become brown and crispy. Add the Swiss chard stems and the stock and cook until the stock has mostly evaporated.
  4. Add the Swiss chard leaves and saute until they are wilted. Season with salt and serve.
