Swiss chard and potatoes
Swiss chard is another item people have asked about. We will sauté them and eat them as a side, add to smoothies, use in dishes like lasagne, you can even freeze them to use later (will need to sauté first them freeze in serving sizes – we will do that for smoothies lots of times if we cannot use it up). Farmer John came across a delicious recipe for chard and potatoes that was a hit in our house, and very easy!
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 4



1 lb of swiss chard

1 lb of potatoes

¼ cup of oil (we used olive oil)

4 large cloves of garlic

Sea salt & pepper

½ to 1 tsp of red hot pepper flakes


  1. Wash chard and trim the stems, then cut stems into 1 inch pieces. 
  2. Fold leaves together and cut into ½ inch strips. 
  3. Boil potatoes (we cut ours into cubs) until almost tender – about 20 minutes. 
  4. Add the swiss chard stems into the potatoes and cook another 10 minutes, then add the swiss chard leaves and cook until wilted. 
  5. Drain the potatoes and chard well in a colander. 
  6. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and add the garlic. 
  7. Season the oil with salt and pepper and add the pepper flakes.
  8. Add the swiss chard and potatoes, then cook over medium hear, stirring often and mashing the potatoes gently as they cook (about 8 minutes). 
  9. Taste and add seasonings as needed, serve warm.
