Serves: 4 

  • 1 bunch Swiss chard

  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.
