Chard Chowder

Nothing is more soothing than a bowl of hot soup - redolent of country kitchens, traditional cooking and the ultimate comfort food. But this chowder will take you even closer to nirvana than most.

The nerve-nourishing B vitamins from lentils, the hormone-balancing plant chemicals in sage and the anti-oxidants in oregano (traditional ingredients in herbs de Provence) turn this nourishing soup into a bowl of relaxation.

Ingredients
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 tbspns olive oil
25g/1oz butter
Half a tsp Herbes de Provence
175g/6 oz tiny green lentils, thoroughly rinsed
650g/1lb 5oz chard, thoroughly washed and roughly torn. (If you can’t get chard, use spinach.)

Method
1 Soften onion and garlic in oil and butter
2 Add lentils, herbs and 850ml/11/2 pints water
3 Boil briskly for 10 mins, then simmer for 25 mins until almost tender
4 Add chard and continue simmering for another 10 mins
5 Liquidise if you like, but this soup tastes great left as it is

Cook’s Note: This soup would work well with any pulse, but make sure you look at the cooking instructions carefully. Some need soaking overnight and boiling for longer.
