  • 1 bunch swiss chard, leaves only
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Blanch swiss chard leaves in boiling water for 30 seconds, just to remove chalky taste. Rinse under cold water and squeeze out water.

  3. Gradually pour olive oil in to feeder tube and continue processing until smooth.
