Rainbow Chard with Ham

Rainbow Chard

We’ve been exploring chard lately – as the star of the show in a cheesy penne recipe, or in a supporting role over baked potatoes. Chard really takes center stage in this side dish; do seek out a bunch of rainbow chard, rather than green or red, since kids will love the rainbow colors.


  • 3 slices vegan ham, chopped
  • 1 bunch rainbow chard (stems and leaves)
  • Cooking spray
  1. Saute the ham in a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until crisp, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the chopped chard (stems and leaves) and cook for an additional 2 minutes, just until wilted.

We served this with my son’s go-to weeknight meal – sauteed sesame tofu!
