The beauty of rainbow Swiss chard is that it only takes about ten minutes to steam and you're done! Chef Rocco DiSpirito loves steaming rainbow chard in a cashew cream or coconut milk sauce. With just four ingredients, this simple side dish pairs perfectly with his pan-lacquered chicken thighs recipe.


  • 4 cups packed organic rainbow Swiss chard, cut into large pieces, stems removed
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium, no-added-fat chicken broth
  • 1 14-oz can organic coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup raw organic cashews


1. In a separate six quart-sauce pan, heat the chicken stock until just simmering and add the Swiss chard. Cook until Swiss chard is tender, about 10 minutes.


2. In a blender, blend the coconut milk with the cashews and add it to the Swiss chard.


3. Serve the Swiss chard with pan-lacquered chicken or separately.
