This is my easy recipe for Swiss chard – I love the flavor of this healthy superfood (excellent source of vitamins A & C and fiber), so I don’t do much to mask the taste. If your kids won’t eat this, try pureeing it with a bit of the cooking liquid or chicken stock. You can easily substitute kale if you wish (I prefer the taste of Swiss chard as I find it a tad less bitter).
Weeknight Swiss Chard
2 bunches of Swiss chard (or kale), rinsed and chopped
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon sea salt flakes
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Boil 12 cups of water in a large pot and add Swiss chard leaves and stems so they are submerged in the water. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Drain in colander, pressing with back of a spoon to remove any excess water. Return Swiss chard to the pot and add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve warm.
