Simply A (RD) Fact: Swiss Chard is an excellent source of Vitamin K, which is important in blood clotting.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • ΒΌ teaspoon red pepper flake
  • 2 cups Swiss Chard, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a small saucepan, add in one egg and cover with cold water. Cover and turn the heat to medium and bring to boil. When the water comes to a boil, turn the heat to medium-low and remove the lid. Let the egg cook for six minutes. When the six minutes are up, bring the saucepan to a sink, pour out the water, and then run cold water over the egg. Crack the egg and let it sit in the cold water for 30-60 seconds until cool enough to handle. Peel and then set aside.
  2. In a deep-side skillet set over medium heat, add in olive oil. When the oil is hot, add in the garlic and red pepper flakes.
  3. When the garlic is fragrant, add in the Swiss chard and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. To serve: Mound the chard in the middle of the plate. Cut the egg in half and place in the center of the chard. Season the egg with salt and pepper. Then dig in!
