What a fantastic word. Straight off the bat you know that dinner was delicious, and…
I was victorious in getting the kids to eat things they’d told me were absolutely & positively inedible (rainbow swiss chard in this case)!

Obviously it’s not my word. It’s Roald Dahl – who else could create such an evocative neologism? But it’s the perfect description for a great meal.

To make the soup I used:

2 cups red onion, diced

3 medium carrots, diced

1 large potato, diced

Stems from 1 bunch swiss chard, diced

3 cloves garlic, finely diced

2 cups tomato, diced

4 cups swiss chard, roughly chopped

1 cup cooked pinto beans

1/2 cup dry white wine

5 cups vegetable stock

1 cup water reserved from cooking the pinto beans

2 tbsp olive oil

Over medium heat I added one tablespoon of olive oil to a heavy based saucepan. I then sautéed the onions, carrots, potatoes, swiss chard stems and garlic till the onions were translucent (about 5 minutes). 

Then I used the white wine to deglazed the pan; added in the stock, bean water and tomatoes; brought the soup up to the boil, and then reduced the heat to low and simmered it covered for 5 minutes.

While the soup was simmering I wilted the Swiss chard leaves in a frypan with one tablespoon of the olive oil and a little salt.

Once the potatoes were tender I turned off the heat and stirred through the pinto beans and wilted Swiss chard.

Yum? No, that’s not the right word … 

Delish? Meh …

scrumdiddilyumptious? Perfect! You see I told you – he just knows the right word to describe a great meal 😉
