Nutritional Bonus: Swiss chard pairs particularly well with the sweet potatoes in this dish thanks to a flavonoid it contains called syringic acid, which helps stabilize blood sugar levels (which spike a little after consuming high-sugar sweet potatoes). Swiss chard is also high in vitamins K and A, which are key for bone and eye health, respectively.
