If you’re looking for a warm and comforting dish, this is the answer.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 3

Ingredients
300g of dried chickpeas
1 bay leaf
2 carrots
1/2 of a bell pepper
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
3 stalks of Swiss chard, including the leaves
200g of plain tomato sauce
water or stock just to cover the vegetables

Method
  • Start by soaking the chickpeas the night before, for 12 hours. If you use canned chickpeas, this stew will be done in even less time.

  • After they have been soaked for 12 hours, wash them thoroughly and set them aside.

  • In a pot, heat up the oil and add the veggies, except the chard. Saute them for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, wash and chop the chard, including the leaves.



  • When the veggies are softer, season with salt and pepper and pour in the chickpeas.



  • Saute everything for 5 more minutes and cover the veggies with water or stock. Let them simmer on low-medium heat with the lid on.
  • After 10-15 minutes pour in the tomato sauce. After another 15 minutes, when the chickpeas are cooked, add in all the chopped chard and stir to combine.



  • Simmer for 10 more minutes. Season again if it’s necessary and serve hot, with rice, quinoa, pasta or plain.
