    1. Catalan style..
      - blanch the chard first to soften, drain, and cut into large pieces
      - sauté sliced garlic in olive oil until fragrant and just beginning to turn golden, then remove garlic
      - add chopped onion and sauté until lightly browned
      - toss in the blanched chard, some dried currants or golden raisins, and toasted pine nuts (add more oil if necessary)
      - finish with a splash of good sherry vinegar, and season with salt & freshly ground pepper

        I make something similar with kale--thanks for this idea

          it's traditionally done with spinach, but it works for various greens.

      2. This is as simple as it gets - roasted. It does not become crispy - just plain good.

        Another of my favourites that I eat a lot each spring in Croatia is simply mashing it into mashed potatoes with olive oil and then season. You can also form this into patties and fry.

        2. This chard, potato, chickpea stew from Food& Wine (without the egg, of course). Even my chard hating DH loves it.

          2. I have not yet tried any of these recipes, but these seem good.

            Creamed (the first recipe uses kale




            Chard could be added to something such as vegan macaroni and "cheese"
