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