  • 2 large saucepots
  • Grater


  • 6 cups chopped swiss chard, chopped into bite sized pieces, hard stem removed
  • 2/3 cup (160 mL) olive oil
  • 3 yellow medium sized onions, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped celery, cut into chunks
  • 3 medium sized carrots, grated
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) tomato juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta, plus more for topping


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the Swiss chard.  Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, until Swiss chard is tender.  This will take approximately 10 – 15 minutes.  Drain in a colander and pour cold water over the Swiss chard to prevent it from cooking further at this point.
  • Meanwhile, in a large pot heat the olive oil and saute your onions, celery and grated carrots.  Cook over medium heat, stirring regularly, until the onions are soft.  This will take 5 – 7 minutes
  • To the pot add the chopped tomatoes, tomato juice, drained Swiss chard and salt and pepper to taste.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thick and all the vegetables are soft (approximately 15 – 20 minutes).
  • Stir in 3/4 cup of crumbled feta and continue to cook until the feta is melted, stirring occasionally.
  • Upon serving, sprinkle additional crumbled feta on top of dish.  Best served warm or at room temperature.
  • Enjoy!
