Vegetarian Spicy Asian Swiss Chard Stir Fry
Author: Gay Van Beek for Canterbury Cottage Designs
  • 10 -15 large stalks of Swiss Chard any variety, washed and air-dried
  • One onion diced
  • 3 carrots diced
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • about 1/2 cup Vegetable Broth
  • Garlic Powder to taste start with 1/4 tsp.
  • 1 Tablespoon Tamari or Soy Sauce I use reduced sodium
  • 1 tsp. Hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp Black Bean Garlic Sauce
  • 1-2 tsp. Chili Garlic Sauce start with 1 tsp, and if you like it extra spicy – add another
  • 2 cups of your favorite basmati jasmine or cauliflower rice, cooked
  • Red pepper flakes for an extra kick
  1. Cut stems away from the swiss chard leaves and chop into one inch pieces. This is easiest if you fold the leaf over right at the stem and cut along the stem.
  2. Stack the leaves for easy chopping and cut into bit-sized pieces.
  3. In a large skillet, add a bit of veggie broth and start to saute the stems, onions, carrots and broccoli with the garlic. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, until the stems are a bit translucent and veggies are tender.
  4. Add the Tamari, Hoisin, Black Bean Garlic Sauce and Chili Garlic Sauce. Cook for about two minutes.
  5. Add the chopped Swiss Chard and saute on low until it has wilted. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Serve hot over rice and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
Recipe Notes

*Some notes about this recipe. I did not have any Black bean sauce so I did not use it and it still tasted great! Black Bean sauce gives a deep, earthy flavor, and adds a bit of salt too and I will definitely use it next time. Also, for a heartier dish, add as many different kinds of veggies as you like. I was limited a bit by what I had on hand.
