I'm making it as a side dish / veggie for dinner but no idea how / what.  We are eating steaks as a main dish.

Ladies, give me your best swiss chard recipe, please !!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently swiss chard is not popular with CM members ...  lol

I did a basic recipe ; pan wilted with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, crushed garlic, fresh nutmeg.   Yesterday I went to the farmer's market and got some again ... I really liked it and want to work with this again.

 it's like a milder version of spinach. So what ever requires spinach, can take swiss chard instead.

I remember my grand mother used to make it when I was little, baked in bechamel sauce and I used to like it then too.  This is my challenge for next week, find another recipe that features Swiss chard in a interesting way as a side dish

that sounds good.  No one else will eat spinach in my family but me.

 there's no harm in trying ... DD doesn't like spinach either but she will eat it if I make stuff like manicottis, stuffed shells or mix it in the ricotta layer of a lasagna. (I tell her it's chopped brocoli LMAO)  A few weeks ago I made tortelini florentine which is a cream sauce with spinach in it.  I made it with fresh young spinach and DD actually liked it. And yes I did tell her it was spinach ...

I might have to try that.  I don't normally like sneaking things in like that, dd can pick pretty much anything out...  But it can't hurt to try.

Sounds good!  I've heard of it, but I've never had it before.  I'll have to look for it.

It's like a lot of other dark greens. I used to be a cook and our gardens were full of it, I could sub it in for any basic green leaf in a recipe. My favorite is stewed a little, with onion. :) It's also good in salads with lots of other veg.
