Wash the chard, remove the stalk and cut off the harder parts. It is best to only use the green leaves. Roughly chop this.
Peel the potatoes and cook like boiled potatoes. Finely dice the onion and chop the garlic.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in another saucepan and sauté the onions. Add the chard and let it collapse. Add the garlic and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the potatoes to the chard and roughly mash them with a fork. Mix everything well, add the rest of the olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. The "Blitva" is done! Tastes great, for example, with fried fish.
