Swiss Chard

Swiss Chard at the Farmers Market

Colorful swiss chard at the farmers market looks so beautiful! How can a food that looks that pretty be edible as well as nutritious? When I looked up this vegetable to learn about the nutrition, The World’s Healthiest Foods website suggests that only the white stems are good to eat. However, I stir fry the colored stems, too, and they are excellent cooked that way. I discovered other recipes of Swiss chard with a variety of ways to cook the stems as well as the leaves and colored stems such as these websites:

Now for my Swiss Chard & Eggs breakfast, it is a good nutritious way to start the day. I like the fact that when I cook the chard leaves on my griddle, they don’t sizzle down to a tiny bit like spinach does.

And then the yellow and white yummies are added to the Swiss chard and veggies…

If you decide to try this recipe or another one with Swiss chard, tell me what you think. I’d love to hear from you.


  1. I love veggies and eggs. I usually make omelets, but this looks good, too. I wonder if you could poach the egg in the juice released by the vegetables.

      Yes, in fact, I was trying to poach the eggs in the juice from these veggies. It seemed to be working but slower than what I wanted. So I flipped the eggs over at least half a minute.
