    recipe from Lexi Beach, taken from Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
    This is my favorite of all the chard recipes I tried last summer. So easy, and so delicious.

    1 bunch chard
    1 small onion, diced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tsp paprika
    1/4-1/2 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
    1-2 Tbsp olive oil
    salt & pepper

    Separate the leaves from the stems of the chard. Coarsely dice the stems and cut the leaves into ribbons. Put all the ingredients together in a pot with a little splash of water and stir it up. Turn the heat on to low and put a cover on the pot. Let it cook for 45 minutes, stirring once or twice as it cooks.

    Swiss Chard Fritters – This is from the cookbook aromas of Aleppo and it tastes greeat.

    1 bunch swiss chard, stems trimmed
    4 eggs, beaten
    1 onion finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
    1/2 tsp allspice
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1 cup vegetable oil

    Bring 1 inch of water to boil in a medium stockpot. Add the swiss chard, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and chop the swiss chard thoroughly.

    Mix the eggs, onion and spices well in a bowl. Stir in the swiss chard. This is the fritter batter.

    Heat the oil in a skilllet over medium heat until it sizzles when it comes in contact with a drop of water. Add spoonfuls of batter and flatten them slightly. Fry each spoonful for 2 minutes, flipping once. Repeat until all the batter is done. Drain excess oil off the fritter by placing ti on a paper towel…and eat! These are best right out of the pan.
