Or to be clearer Swiss chard, you know how I love my greens and I am always trying to find interesting ways of serving them up. You buy a big bunch but what to do with it?
Well with summer here I wanted to do a lighter version of creamed spinach. This recipe can be served at room temperature as part of a vegetable platter or with a piece of fish.
Swiss chard is good for you because it contains iron and vitamin C, important nutrients to help with anaemia. It also contains vitamin K which is important for bone health and of course plant antioxidant that keeps us healthy.
Olives are little nutrition powerhouses we often just see them as a tasty addition but they have many health benefits. As a fruit they are very nutrient dense and contain healthy fats plus vitamin E and squalene which helps to keep our skin healthy, smooth and glowing.
What you Need
Swiss chard, finely chopped
Place the Swiss chard in a large pot and allow to wilt, take out and put into a colander before it looses it's colour. In the same pot add some olive oil and add the Swiss chard into the pot with the chilli and a grind of sea salt. Allow to fry for about a minute until the Swiss chard is well coated with the olive oil and chilli, add in the juice of half a lemon and stir. Place on a dish and top with the crumble feta cheese and the chopped olives. Drizzle over a little more olive oil and black pepper.
Another easy peasy way to have your greens.
