Savory Swiss Chard with Pine Nuts and Cranberries

Savory Swiss Chard with Pine Nuts and Cranberries using Healthy on You Thyme in Tuscany
Swiss Chard is a vegetable that I keep in my garden year round and I am always trying to find delicious ways to use it up. Swiss Chard is packed with potassium, iron, and fiber and it’s a bit sturdier than spinach and holds together well in a sauté recipe like this one. The use of anchovy paste here really adds a different dimension to this recipe along with the herby flavors of my Healthy On You®  Let the Good Thymes Roll spice blend.


Makes 4 servings


  1. Wash the Swiss chard then separate the stems from the green leaves. Dice the stems and set aside then chop the green leaves.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet. Add the stems from the chard and cook until soft, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add the anchovy paste and stir until it is combined and assimilated with the Chard stems.
  4. Add the garlic, pine nuts, cranberries and the Let the Good Thymes Roll spice blend to the mix and continue to stir until the pine nut start to get toasted and the garlic and seasoning are fragrant 2-5 minutes.

  5. Add the fresh greens and toss with all the ingredients in the pan. Cook until the chard begins to reduce and get darker in color.
  6. Season with sea salt and pepper and serve immediately.
