This is a good quick recipe. I modified it for hubby's sake. Left the lemon out, minced the garlic & left it in, a little salt, a little pepper....DELICIOUS!

Didnt care as a side, however, over rice would be better. Too much lemon?

Nice. We liked it so much we planted some swiss chard in the garden this summer to use in this recipe. Liked by my children too.

It is easy to make. We had never had chard before and will probably make it again. I found it better than spinach. It has a nicer flavor, in my opinion.

Simple but good! I usually only use chard leaves so this encouraged me to try something new, and I'm glad I did.
