  • 1 kg Swiss chard
  • 500 g Potatoes
  • 1 piece Onion
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • 8 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt pepper


  • 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.
