  • 3 lbs. Swiss chard
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 - 4 garlic cloves lightly crushed with side of knife
  • Sliced bread if large about 8 slices, if using a baguette about 12 slices


  1. Wash Swiss chard. Remove and thinly slice the stems, and roughly chop the leaves.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium and add garlic. Let the garlic fry for about 1 minute to let it flavour the oil.
  3. Add the stems and sauté until tender, about 8 minutes. Remove the garlic pieces.
  4. During that time, slice the bread and either toast in a toaster or under the broiler or grill on the BBQ or a grill skillet.
  5. Next add the leaves to the stalks and sauté until nicely wilted, about 5 minutes.
  6. Top the grilled or toasted bread with the garlicky Swiss chard mixture and serve.
