Chard and Green Garlic

If you’ve never had green garlic before, I highly recommend it.  I was slicing it up tonight and had M smell it.  I said, “It’s like garlic, only cool and refreshing instead of sharp!” and he completely agreed.


  • 1 bunch chard
  • 1 large stalk green garlic
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasonings of your choice
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (optional)

What To Do:

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat
  • Add chopped green garlic and chopped chard stems, saute for five minutes
  • Add water, then quinoa and seasonings, stir well
  • Rip up chard leaves and sprinkle over the top
  • Cover and cook on med/low for 20-25 minutes, or until quinoa and chard leaves are acceptably tender
  • Squeeze lemon juice over everything and serve

This was very flavorful!
