I’ve been on a roll with potatoes and I’m very pleased with this Thai curried potato with chard recipe. It’s one of my most popular recipes. Since my local store only sells organic potatoes in a big bag, I have a lot right now.
In case you don’t know, chard and kale are some of the most nutrient-dense foods out there. Protein worries? One medium potato has about 4.5 grams, 2 cups cooked chard, 6 grams.
All veggies have some protein and combining potatoes with other veggies will load you up on protein without having to add meat.
The best thing about this recipe is there are only a few ingredients and it is easy to prepare. Since there are only a few ingredients, it’s important to use quality items (especially curry.) Be sure to prepare your swiss chard correctly.
If you’ve never used this ingredient and feel intimidated, this video shows how easy it is to clean and prepare. Be sure to cut your potatoes uniformly. If you don’t have similar sized cuts, then some will not cook all the way through.
Add a little light coconut milk and you’re on the way to Thai heaven… The key to this recipe is to let it reduce so you can get the most intense flavor.

What method of cooking do you use? I read no mention of the stove top or pan or even a pressure cooker.
Hi and thanks for your question. I’ve updated the recipe to make it clearer. This is a stovetop recipe in a skillet or saute pan.
What do you drink ? Throughout the day.
Hi Shirley, I drink decaf coffee in the morning and really mostly water throughout the day. I occasionally have an herbal tea or dilute a fruit juice like tart cherry with water, but water is my drink of choice most times.
