My favourite way to eat Swiss Chard (cooked recipe)

I haven’t been feeling all that raw lately. It’s not such a cold winter, but still I’ve been enjoying soups and warm salads mixed in with my usual raw green smoothies and regular raw salads. Today I had a craving for swiss chard and I decided to do a light sautee in my favourite way.

Recipe: Warm Swiss Chard Salad

  • 1 bunch of swiss chard, washed and chopped
  • 1/3 cup of sliced red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp of grapeseed oil, or your cooking oil of choice*
  • 1/2 lemon
  • splash of good quality EVOO (optional)
  • salt to taste (optional)


  1. Heat up a pan and sautee onion and garlic in your cooking oil until the garlic starts to change colour.
  2. Add your Swiss Chard stirring constantly.
  3. Just as the Swiss Chard begins to wilt, turn the heat off.
  4. Stir a bit more, then add the lemon to cool off the pan. Stir well.
  5. Add a splash of really good quality olive oil and season with salt if you like. Usually I use Himalayan salt but I just used some garlic salt that’s quite yummy.
  6. Serve warm, or enjoy it cold or at room temperature later.

*I don’t like to cook with olive oil because it has a lower smoke point. I prefer grapeseed oil or coconut oil, depending on the recipe. Grapeseed oil has a more neutral flavour.

I just inhaled the entire bunch of swiss chard on my own. Delicious!
