'swiss chard' on Serious Eats

Curried Chicken With Israeli Couscous

I'd like to take a moment to introduce you to your next go-to weeknight meal, because that's what this dish has become for me. Shredded poached chicken and couscous—here flavored with curry and topped with crunchy pepitas and fresh cilantro—are all cooked in one skillet in under 30 minutes. More

Make-Ahead Detox Turkey Soup

After hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, first, seconds, thirds, probably a midnight snack, and leftover pie for breakfast, chances are you may be craving some clean eating after Thanksgiving. This soup creates a lot of flavor in a short period of time, using ingredients most likely already purchased for the holiday. More

Swiss Chard and Spinach Ravioli Nudi in Simple Tomato Sauce From 'The Glorious Vegetables of Italy'

Ravioli nudi are not the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Italian pasta-like dishes. But the small cheesy dumplings, essentially ravioli without the pasta, are a perfect vehicle for enjoying Italian vegetables. The nudi in Domenica Marchetti's new cookbook, The Glorious Vegetables of Italy, are just as much leafy green as they are ricotta and Parmesan. She combines big leafy spinach with even bigger leafy swiss chard and the cheese for a grassy, earthy dumpling mixed with a light, delicate touch. More

Swiss Chard Braised in Shiitake Butter

When it comes to winter greens (we're looking at you, kale, chard, and collards), it's easy to fall back on the familiar: garlic and olive oil or bacon and onions. A few short minutes in the sauté pan and those combos make for quick, easy sides that never fail to satisfy and fill in that "we should really be eating more greens" void. But after so many years of going the same route with greens, I think it's about time to try something new. This plate of Swiss Chard Braised in Shiitake Butter from Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Home Cooking with Jean-Georges is my new go-to greens recipe. More

Dinner Tonight: Swiss Chard Frittata

It seems obvious now, but eggs are among the simplest and most versatile things for making dinner, and very hard to mess up. Later I found out if you can make an omelette then you can also also make a frittata. Just mix the filling into the eggs beforehand instead of folding them in after; the result is somehow much fancier. The ingredients in this one are classic: some cooked-down greens with a little onion and garlic, cubed potato, and shredded cheddar cheese to add a salty tang. More

Cook the Book: Crunchy Red Swiss Chard Falafel 

I'm a fan of the falafel, the bright green variety. The crisp little chickpea fritters are brightened up with tons of finely chopped parsley and cilantro, and the added greenery does wonders for what can sometimes be a dauntingly dense sandwich. Silvena Rowe, author of Purple Citrus & Sweet Perfume has taken the green falafel concept one step further with these fantastically light Crunchy Red Swiss Chard Falafel. More
