I do cook with Swiss chard often; Swiss chard soup or Swiss chard with brown rice are some of the dishes that I make on the regular basis.
Here is another recipe that I made that turned out great. It is Swiss chard fritters with Parmesan cheese. It’s very simple to make and you can enjoy as a somewhat healthy snack.
Also these fritters will be a perfect finger food or a side dish for everyone. Even the little people who hasn’t developed the taste bud for the deep green vegetables would like them. Mine did!
How to Make Swiss Chard Fritters
Cook the chard in the boiling water with a little bit of salt. Drain and rinse with cold water. Squeeze out the water.
Chop finely into small pieces
Squeeze them out again to remove the excess moisture.
Put the chard in a mixing bowl and add the rest of ingredients including the grated Parmesan cheese.
Mix all together.
Heat oil over medium to medium low heat. Pan-fry them until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes each side.
Enjoy the goodness of your not-so-hard labor of love.
You can dip them in a soy + lemon juice dipping sauce or any type of dipping sauce of your choice. But I like mine just plain, the way it is without any dipping. They were just rightly seasoned. Delicious!

Hello, Do you have a restaurant here in Argentina? 🙂
I miss korean food so much !
No, unfortunately I don’t own any restaurant, but there is a Korean community near Avenita Moron in Bs As with a several Koran groceries and restaurants. I am sure you can google search the locations.
Are you sure this is swiss chard? Swiss chard usually has a thicker stem…and is usually red.
I know what you mean. It is a kind of Swiss chard but slightly different than the most. The stem part is thinner, which means they must have been harvested before they grow too big. Some Swiss chard has white stem while others have red.
Happy new year! The fritters look perfect, green and gold and tempting.
