Inspired by the full-flavored vegetable stews of Spain, this earthy fare satisfies the stomach and warms the soul. Don't worry if some of the potato slices break up during cooking; they'll just add to the country feeling. Use vegetable stock for a vegetarian-friendly stew.
For Chard:
1 pound swiss chard, tough stems removed, leaves washed well and chopped
For Potatoes:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 pounds baking potatoes (about 3), peeled and sliced 3/4-inch thick
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt

2 cups drained and rinsed canned chickpeas (one 19-ounce can)
3 cups canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
1 cup water
2 hard-cooked eggs, cut into wedges
Swiss Chard, Potato, and Chickpea Stew Recipe at
FOR CHARD: Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the chard and cook for 3 minutes. Drain thoroughly and set aside.

FOR POTATOES: In a Dutch oven, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the potatoes and onion and saute, stirring frequently, until the potatoes start to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, turmeric, cayenne, and salt and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

TO SERVE: Add the cooked chard, chickpeas, broth, and water. Bring to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Serve the stew garnished with the hard-cooked eggs.

VEGETABLE TIP: Swiss chard is available with either reddish or light-green stalks. The red variety has a slightly stronger flavor, but the two are generally interchangeable.

WINE RECOMMENDATION: A cozy cold-weather stew, with its earthbound flavors, begs for a similarly rustic, full-bodied white wine. A white Côtes-du-Rhône from the warm and sunny south of France will fill the bill nicely.

Even My Kids Love It
Great flavors! Even my kids love to eat it and ask for it. To make a full meal I add polish sausage when sauteing the potatoes.
