  • 1 pound trimmed chard stalks (from about 4 large bunches)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup tahini
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2-4 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Strip any tough strings from chard stalks. Cook in the boiling water until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain; pat dry.
  3. Meanwhile, use a fork to mash garlic with salt to make a paste. Mix in a small bowl with tahini. Gradually whisk in lemon juice: at first it will thicken and turn very hard, but keep mixing! Whisk in oil and enough water to yield a consistency for drizzling.
  4. Arrange the chard on a platter. Drizzle with ¼ cup sauce and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with more of the sauce on the side, if desired.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate sauce (Step 3) for up to 5 days.
