The best (and easiest) chard dish ever

I know that's quite a promise to meet, but it's true. I have found a very easy way to prepare chard that tastes great!

I found this recipe for chard oshitashi on the Martha Stewart website. You don't need a recipe though; it's that easy.

Wash a large bunch of chard, cut of the ends of the stems, and give it a rough chop.
Boil it for 4 minutes.
Strain the chard and put it immediately into an ice bath.
After it's cooled down, strain the chard again and squeeze off the excess water.

Put the chard in a bowl. Pour soy sauce on it (the recipe calls for 2 tablespoons). Stir. Let marinate in the fridge until you're ready to eat it.
Before serving, sprinkle on some sesame seeds. Or bonito flakes, which is what the recipe calls for.

Easy to make, few ingredients, and enjoyed even by those who don't usually enjoy chard. Highly recommended.
