"My husband and I really liked this recipe. That's notable, since we are growing a lot of chard in our garden this year, and this is the first recipe we've really liked! It would also be good with other types of beans, and even adding meat would be interesting."

"I made this with red chard. This was good, coming from someone who isn't the biggest fan of chard. The only reason I made this was because I didn't know what else to make with the chard. This recipe was simple and fast."
