Chard Chickpea Stew

As I was venturing through the produce aisle this week,  Swiss Chard was on sale.  This leafy green is a nutritional powerhouse and an excellent source of Vitamin A, C,  potassium and fiber, and is low in calories but provides more than 300% Vitamin K per serving!  Paired with sweet smelling leeks, tomatoes, and protein packed chickpeas, this stew will have your family asking for more! ENJOY!

Ingredients:

5 cloves garlic

2 Tbs olive oil


1/2 large sweet onion

1 Leek (sliced)

1 Tbs Cumin

1 tsp Cayenne

6 Large leaves swiss chard

3 cups Low-sodium Chicken Broth

1 can (14 oz) no-salt added diced tomatoes

1 can (16 oz) chickpeas (rinsed)

1 cup water

Salt/pepper to taste

Directions:


  1. Chop all ingredients.  Pull leaves from the step of swiss chard and set aside.  Pull apart leaves into small pieces with hands

  2.  In a large soup pan, saute garlic, onion, and spices 3 minutes or until translucent.

  3. Add swiss chard stems and leeks an additional 3 minutes

  4. Add the rest of ingredients and bring to a simmer for 30-40 minutes, adding additional salt/pepper to taste.
