Swiss Chard Crostini

Swiss Chard is a staple in our home because it grows year round in Santa Barbara. I love the smattering of colorful stems in the garden almost as much as I love its buttery flavor and fabulous texture. Here is a super quick and easy sauté preparation for this lovely green. I use in a multitude of ways. It gets tossed in pasta, stuffed into omelets, arranged as a topping for crostini. Any way you decide to serve it, it’s just darn delicious.


Over the years, I have made crostini in many different ways: in the broiler, in the over oven, and on the grill. The thing is, you don’t want to overcook the bread so it’s hard to bite into, but you also don’t want to cook it so lightly that it falls apart or is soggy. I’ve discovered that my favorite way to cook crostini is with my grill pan.
