Swiss Chard with Boiled Potatoes

  • A wonderful and healthy Mediterranean side dish that goes with all main dishes, such as fish and various types of meat. It is easy to prepare and ready quickly. It is made from chard boiled potatoes with special tricks to make it tastier! I live in the Mediterranean area, so I often make it with burgers and sea fish. Follow recipe.

Ingredients: simple, total time: 35 min., 3 serving
  • 2 bunches of fresh Swiss chard/ cleaned and boiled

  • 4 medium potatoes/ cut into pieces

  • sea salt to taste

  • 1 teaspoon dry bio spice/ Vegeta

  • pinch of black pepper

  • 20 g butter/ 1 cube

  • 3 cloves of garlic/ minced

  • 3 Tablespoon Olive oil EVO

  • water

  • deep pot

  1. Bring water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a deep pot.

  2. While waiting for the water to boil, wash the Swiss chard, remove the excess stalks, cut the white thicker part into the letter V and remove. Leave in a colander to drain excess water.

  3. Put the Swiss chard in the boiled water and cover the pot. Stir occasionally and cook for about 10 minutes.

  4. With a slotted spoon, take out the Swiss chard, drain the liquid well before putting it in a deep plate. Do not throw this water away, you will need this for later!

  5. Transfer all the Swiss chard to a strainer, let it cool for about 10 minutes.

  6. Cut the Swiss chard into smaller pieces on a board, do not chop finely!!

  7. Add potatoes cut into pieces to the same water in a smaller pot and cook for about 25 minutes.

  8. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and save the liquid.

  9. Drain the potatoes well.

  10. Pour 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil into a large pan, wait for it to heat up on moderate heat. Add boiled potatoes in pieces, salt, and pepper to taste then stir, cook about 5 minutes.

  11. Pour some liquid (150 ml) in potatoes, where the Swiss chard and potatoes were cooked.

  12. Then add the sliced Swiss chard and stir it all together to combine.

  13. When the liquid has almost evaporated, add the butter, stir it well into the ingredients. Add the minced garlic immediately when the butter has melted, combine all the ingredients well. Cook for about 1 minute, then turn off the heat.

  14. Drizzle with olive oil and stir.

  15. Swiss chard is ready to serve.

Buon appetito!
