Swiss chard is a versatile green, great as a side or as a component of heartier main dishes.

Wilted chard is good as an addition to sandwiches, quiches, frittatas, and pastas, or simply sautéed with olive oil and garlic (CeeBee loves this recipe for Swiss chard with raisins and pine nuts).

For heartier fare, cannellini beans complement chard, says TheDescendedLefticleOfAramis, in recipes like CHOW’s Braised White Beans with Chard. LindaWhit recommends combining chard and garbanzo beans in this African vegetable stew.

Also beloved are chard, onion, and Gruyère panade (bread casserole) from The Zuni Cafe Cookbook and leek and Swiss chard tart.
