Swiss chard, also known as chard, is a green spinach beet with large leaves as well as leafy blades that are often white, red or yellow in color. The leaf blades can often be cut, cooked and eaten separately from the leaves.
While Swiss chard is widely grown and available all year round, its peak season is during the summer months, when it can be abundantly found at farmers’ markets, vegetable stands and organic markets.

Basically, you can use chard in recipes that call for spinach, as the leaves wilt when cooked in a similar manner to spinach leaves. One of the most common ways to cook Swiss chard is by sautéing the leaves with garlic or other veggies in a stir-fry, but it’s also excellent baked in lasagnas, added to pastas and melted with cheese in omelets.
Next time you want to make a recipe with spinach, why not try something different and swap out the spinach for Swiss chard instead? While the leaves have a bitter taste when raw, they develop a sweeter, milk flavor when cooked down.
