  • 1 dry chili, crumbled
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree or passata
  • 1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley, chopped

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat, add chilli, stir for a few seconds. Add onion and carrot, fry till tender. Add wine and chick peas and puree, then cook down till thick.

Lemon juice will discolour chard and parsley, so don't add it until ready to serve.
