    I made this twice already, once with spinach and once with kale. I can't wait to try swiss chard. I need to watch the sodium in my diet so I skipped the salt and still thought the recipe was extremely flavourful. Thanks for this! - 5/1/08

    Thank you for using lots of garlic. it makes up for the lack of salt porkin tradtional greens recipes. I like to use roasted garlic as its really mellow and my 2 year old will eat it. - 4/17/08

    We loved it. My 11 yr old daughter, who loves galic liked it. My husband put pepper, butter & more red pepper on. The rest of us eat it as it was prepared. When making, I used double the galic. - 4/14/08

    I grew up eating this and absolutely love it. Swiss chard is very easy to grow in a backyard garden. Spinach is a good alternative as well. I use lots of garlic and red pepper and often use it to make a sandwich with crusty bread for a great lunch or dinner. - 4/11/08

    I make something similar with kale but I usually caramalize some onions then add the garlic then just throw all the kale on top (too lazy to cook it separately first). Also throw on some liquid smoke and lemon juice. soooooo delicious and feels like eating pure healthiness. - 4/11/08

    I made this to go with yam fries--it was very good, but next time I'll use more galic and pepper, as it was a little mild for my tastes. Still quite good though...swiss chard rocks! - 4/11/08

    This was excellent without the salt. Swiss chard is a very high-sodium vegetable to begin with, and doesn't need added salt. - 3/18/10

    I used Kale, and after I washed the greens, while they still had the water on them, I microwaved them for 3 minutes, fit in the skillet better and no need for the final 7 to 10 minutes of cooking. I could live on this stuff. - 8/27/07
