Makes a side for two, or add an additional protein to make a light meal.

Approximate cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large bunch chard
  • 1/3 (403 mL) can organic coconut milk (preferably Native Forest - it has no BPA's in the can liner)
  • 1 Tbs coconut oil
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • sea salt (to taste, optional)
  • optional protein (shrimp, scallops, chicken, salmon)

Instructions

  • Melt coconut oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile, rinse and roughly chop chard (stalk included for more fiber).
  • Place the chard in the pan with coconut oil and cover. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add coconut milk, lemon and sea salt (if desired). Stir in completely.
  • Cook for a few more minutes and serve hot.

  1. This was delicious. The lemon juice and coconut milk added a really nice flavor. I would definitely recommend using the stems too since it gave it a nice crunch. Even my husband who does not like greens, loved it. So easy too!

    Anyone ever tired this with a different type of green rather than swiss chard? Its just too bitter for my taste.

    I made this with zucchini rather than the chard since my grocery store didn’t have chard. Very tasty!

    Made it with spinach! Delicious!

  5. Is the coconut milk in this recipe full fat or does it matter?

  6. this may be a dumb question, but is is 1/3 of a 403mL can of coconut milk or 403mL of coconut milk?

  7. 1/3 of a 403ml can

  8. We made this tonight and it was awesome! It was great to find a new way to cook swiss chard!!! Thank you!!!
