Recipes with chards

This article was endorsed by Elisenda Carballido - Dietitian nutritionist. Postgraduate in Phytotherapy and master in Nutrition and Metabolism.


– Bread dough (you can buy it at the bakery)


– 1Kg of chards

– 1 large onion

– 2 boiled eggs in cubes

– 2 garlic cloves

– 2 tablespoons of olive oil

– Salt and a teaspoon of herbs de Provence

– 6 chopped walnuts


– Boil the chard, clean it and chop it, drain it and reserve it. (You can use the herbal water for cooking: soups, rice…)

– We will put the oil in a skillet and saute the chopped onion and garlic with a little salt, when the chard is golden, we will stir occasionally.

– Turn off the heat and add nuts, eggs and herbs of Provence, and stir well.

– Prepare the pies with the dough, making balls the size of tennis balls or a little smaller (with clean floured hands to prevent the dough from sticking) and crush them in a circle, to which we will add a portion of filling and close it, folding each pie in a half crescent shape, with a cord on the edge, with the fingers or pressing it with the tines of a fork, tracing small crevices.

– Optional:

You can decorate them, painting them with egg and adding a little bit of poppy seeds or sesame seeds.

We will cook them on a tray with cooking paper at 200°C. We will try to put them separated so they do not come together when cooked (they grow quite a lot).

Bon appetit!
