Red Chard, Spring Garlic & Parmesan

Fresh red chards and garlic make a nutritious and delicious side that can beautifully pair with fresh pasta.

We use parmesan in this recipe, but if you are vegetarian you can use an alternative easily.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 spring garlic: keep the bulb and stem parts separate and slice them thinly.

  • 1 bunch of red chards

  • 1 tbsp Parmesan, freshly grated

  • salt and pepper


  • Add the oil to a large saucepan. Add the sliced garlic buld part and cook for a few minutes without browning.

  • Slice the rinsed red chards heads crossways into strips of about 1/2 inch. Add to the garlic, turning the heat up and stirring regularly for about 4-5 minutes until wilted.

  • Add the thinly sliced green garlic stem, stir in with the greens and cook for 1 minute. Finish by stirring in freshly grated Parmesan, salt and pepper.

  • Optional, if you want a more creamy dish: add 2 tbsp of heavy cream.

Enjoy with your favorite pasta!
