1 white onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, lightly crushed

2 ounces black or purple olives, pitted and roughly chopped

7 ounces canned chopped Italian plum tomatoes

Vegetable stock, as needed

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cook chard stems in boiling salted water for 15 minutes. Drain.

Heat olive oil in large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook until soft, about 7 minutes. Add olives and boiled stems; stir to combine. Stir in tomatoes and enough stock to make it just a bit soupy; heat through 10-15 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.

Serves four.
