Swiss Chard and Peppers


  • 1/3 bunch of swiss chard, roughly chopped.
  • ½ onion, sliced into 1/8 in slices
  • 2 Sweet Peppers (Hungarian Waxed), sliced into 1/8 in slices
  • 2 T fresh squeezed orange juice
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • Salt
  • Olive Oil


  1. Heat the oil in a saute pan and add the onion and peppers. Saute until softened. Add the chard and cook until it starts to blend with the onions and peppers. Add a pinch of crushed red pepper and salt. Stir, then add the orange juice. Stir to combine, but then let it simmer until the juice is absorbed and gets a little caramelized. Serve warm.
