I have a couple over at my blog, "A Pound Of Yeast" (http://apoundofyeast.blogspot...). One is for stuffed chard leaves (think stuffed grape leaves) and one is for chard pancakes, where the shredded chard is mixed into a savory pancake batter, and then griddled like a pancake. Look in the archives, because I posted them a while back. I can vouch for the quality of both recipes, I've made them multiple times. And I was never a chard fan before I found these two.

i like to keep it simple: olive oil, chili flakes, thinly sliced garlic. to make a heartier meal, i also sometimes add sausage removed from it's casing. either way, you can always put it on top of pasta.

This is a lovely recipe for a vegetarian main dish or a side for roasted or grilled meat or fish.

I cut chard into 2" pieces. Toss the stems into a large shallow pan with 1" salted water. Cover & cook for a couple of minutes, then add the leafy tops. Cook until just tender. Drain & set aside. In the same pan, heat to medium with several tbsp olive oil and 1 or 2 cloves very thinly sliced garlic, a handful of halved kalamata olives, and a tbsp or two of chopped preserved lemon. When fragrant, add the drained chard. Toss around for another couple of minutes until heated through. Taste & adjust for salt & pepper.
