Swiss chard is one of my favorite vegetables due to it's taste, versatility in recipes, and nutritional content. Medical doctors would agree that Swiss chard is a "nutritional powerhouse" as it is an excellent source of Vitamin A, K, C as well as magnesium, potassium, iron, and dietary fiber. Swiss chard is one of those miracle vegetables that I always like to mention to people who are questioning if they can really get the essentials for living from eating a plant-based diet. I have the added benefit of growing this veggie in my organic garden as well, which helps me to live the sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyle I desire.

Today, we will be making Swiss chard in our Instant Pot pressure cooker. This is really easy to do with a little bit of instruction, and makes an excellent, dense meal perfect for lunches and dinners. I often like to prepare the Swiss chard and pair it with other vegetables like potatoes for an even more powerful meal.

I hope you find this instruction for cooking Swiss chard in an Instant Pot pressure cooker to be useful. If you have not yet tried Swiss chard, I would highly recommend it! From talking to some friends and family, it's occurred to me that many have never had it. Probably because your average salad is made up of Romain and Iceburg lettuce. At 61 years young, I'd like to think it's never too late to try something new, especially something that can be so healthy and beneficial for you!
