Serves: 4

  • 3 Idaho Russet potatoes
  • 1 pound Swiss chard
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Peel the potatoes and dice them into 1 inch pieces. Fill a large pot with water, add potatoes, some salt and bring to a boil.
  2. Trim about 1/2 inch off the chard's stems and chop it up into 2 inch pieces.
  3. When potatoes are tender, add the chard and cook for about 10 minutes or until the stem pieces are tender. Drain in a colander.
  4. Return back into the pot. Dress with olive oil, add finely chopped garlic and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir well and mash with a fork. Serve warm or room temperature.
