Chard and chickpea delight


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 dry chili, crumbled
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 400g chickpeas (cooked) drain and rinse
  • 1 bunch chard, chopped and thick stems removed
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree or passata
  • 1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat, add chilli and stir for a few seconds. Add onion and carrot. Cook until tender.
  2. Add wine, chickpeas and tomato puree. Allow it to cook down till thick.
  3. Add chard and most of the parsley. Season and cook for 10 minutes more to wilt the chard.
  4. Add lemon juice, sprinkle the rest of the parsley on top and serve immediately.


Lemon juice will discolour chard and parsley, so don’t add till ready to serve.
