Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of Swiss chard with stems
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 medium green zucchini, sliced into half-moons about 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 medium yellow zucchini, sliced into half-moons about 1/2 inch thick
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Separate the stems from the chard leaves. Finely chop the stems and set them aside. Slice the leaves thinly and set them aside. In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Add the Swiss chard stems, garlic, thyme, and bay leaf. Cook for about 1 minute longer. Pour in the wine and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-high and cook until most of the liquid evaporates. Add the zucchini, stock, and a hefty pinch of salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil again. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the zucchini is tender, about 8 minutes.
  • Add the chickpeas and chard leaves. Continue to cook until the chard wilts down a bit. Season with the lemon juice, lemon zest, red pepper flakes, and additional salt and pepper.
  • Ladle into bowls and serve.
