  • 1 small bunch Swiss Chard
  • 1/2 onion finely minced
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp oil for pan-frying


  • If the tip of the stem part of Swiss chard is tough, cut them off. Cook the chard in boiling water with a little bit of salt. Drain and rinse with cold water. Squeeze out excess water.
  • Chop the chard into tiny pieces and squeeze out again to remove excess water but not to be totally dry.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the Swiss chard, flour, eggs, and cheese. Season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Spoon up the mixture in oil and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Adjust the heat if it browns too quickly.
  • Place the fritters on a paper towel to remove the excess oil. Serve hot as is or with the dipping sauce of your choice.
