Swiss Chard & Beans

Recipe by holistic nutrition and wellness coach, Maria Marlowe.


1 bunch Swiss chard, sliced into ribbons, stem sliced thin and kept separate from leaves

1 Tbsp. olive oil or coconut oil

½ small red onions (about 2 oz.) or one small shallot

2 cloves garlic minced

1 Tbsp. turmeric

2 tsp. cumin powder

1 tsp. cayenne optional

1/2 tsp. mustard seeds optional

½ inch ginger grated

1¼ cup cannelini beans or beans of choice, cooked

pink salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Heat a large pan on medium-low heat for about 30 seconds.

  2. Add enough oil to coat the bottom, and let heat up, about another minute.

  3. Add the onions, garlic, and spices, let cook for 1 minute.

  4. Add the ginger, swiss chard stems, and beans, and let cook for about another 2 minutes.

  5. Add in the greens and cover, for 1-2 minutes. The greens will start to shrink and turn bright green.

  6. Stir until the greens are uniformly bright green, and wilted, which should only take a couple of minutes. Don't overcook.

  7. Remove from heat, add salt and black pepper to taste, and serve.
