Swiss Chard and Cannellini Beans

Swiss Chard and Cannellini Beans


  • 1 bunch of Swiss chard, washed well
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1-15oz can of Cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • Loaf of crusty bread (optional)


  1. Chop the Swiss chard, separating the leaves and stems. You will want the leaves in larger pieces, while the stems should be chopped into small pieces. Keep the leaves separate from the stems.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the avocado oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring regularly so it does not burn. 
  3. Add the chopped chard stems to the skillet, cooking for 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
  4. Add the leaves, stirring frequently so they become coated with the avocado oil. Cook until wilted, approximately 6 minutes. 
  5. Once the leaves are wilted, add the cannellini beans and seasonings, mixing together gently. Allow the beans to cook until hot, about 5 minutes then turn off the heat. 
  6. Once heat is off, add the red wine vinegar, mixing gently. Let mixture sit on stove for 3-5 minutes before serving.

This dish can be served as a side dish alongside any of your favorite proteins. This is also a delicious option for adding on top of sliced toasted sourdough bread, a baguette, or even rye toast. Give it try!
