    Very good! Mixed it up a bit to fit my diet & my cupboard: subst. black beans for garbanzos, olive oil for sesame, homemade salt-free taco seas., golden mushroom soup, balsamic vinegar&water instead of lemon. Chopped chard stems & added w/tomato so they'd be more tender. Topped w/sunflower seeds. - 4/6/09

    This was my first experience with chard and I was really pleased. I added some crushed red pepper, oregano and basil with the salt and pepper and used canned tomatoes since fresh are out of season. Served over lentils and brown rice. I'll definitely keep this in mind next time we get chard. - 3/29/09

  • this was my first experience with chard. I used canned tomato.
    I also chopped the stems and added w/tomato so they"d be tender. I liked the flavors. Not sure the chard was the correct tenderness. I would attempt this again.
