    Serves: 4 

    • 1 bunch Swiss chard
    • 250ml water

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Wash the Swiss chard and cut into 2.5cm strips. Separate the thick and tough stalk sections from the upper leafy strips.
    2. Bring the water and 1 tablespoon of salt to the boil in a large saucepan.
    3. Cook the stalk sections in the salted boiling water for 2 minutes. Stir in the leafy strips and cook until the leaves are wilted and the stalks are fork tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
    4. Heat the olive oil, garlic and crushed chillies in a large frying pan over medium heat until aromatic, about 3 minutes. Add the drained Swiss chard, cook and stir for 2 minutes; season with salt to taste.


    If you can't find Swiss chard, use spinach instead.
