About this recipe: A fantastically simple and nutritious vegetable side dish. Rainbow chard is sauteed with onion and fresh ginger, before being drizzled with maple syrup.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bunch rainbow chard, leaves and stems separated and chopped
  • 50g chopped onion
  • 2 (5mm thick) slices fresh root ginger, peeled and julienned
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the chopped chard stems, onion and ginger in the hot oil until they begin to soften; season with salt and pepper. Add the chopped chard leaves to the frying pan; reduce heat to low. Continue cooking until the leaves have wilted, about 2 minutes more. Drizzle the maple syrup over the mixture; stir to coat evenly. Remove from heat and serve.


If you can't get your hands on rainbow chard, use ordinary Swiss chard instead. Also spinach would be a good substitute.
