Chard and chickpea stew- Recipe by coolinarika.com -
Warm and full flavoured, this colourful stew makes a delicious light meal with a salad and crusty French bread or garlic toast.
Fry the onions in olive oil, then add the finely chopped garlic and chopped tomatoes. Add a tablespoon of Vegeta, sugar and chopped chilli pepper and simmer for 5-10 minutes, constantly adding water. Add the drained chickpeas and pour in about 700 ml of water. Once boiling, add the chopped chard and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve warm with toasted bread.
Chef's tip: You can use the same recipe to prepare bean stew, simply replacing the chickpeas with the beans of your choice.
