"This earthy Catalonian stew, called olla amb llentilles, is made with green lentils and is given body by the potatoes, color by the Swiss chard, and spicing by the saffron. It is particularly nice served with pork, although you can certainly eat it as a main course with a green and salad and some bread. If you would like this dish to be stewy, use 5 cups of water, but if you would like all the water absorbed, use 4 cups in step 3." From "Real Stew"
1.Chop enough of the white parts of the Swiss chard stems to measure 1 1/2 cups. Cut about 6 oz of the leaves into strips, and cut again crosswise. Reserve any leftover Swiss chard for another use.
2.Place the lentils in a strainer and soak in a bowl filled with cold water to cover for 10 minutes. Drain.
3.In a large saucepan or casserole, heat the olive oil over medium heat with the chopped Swiss chard stems and salt. Cook until soft, about 10 minutes, stirring. Add the Swiss chard leaves, potatoes, saffron and water, Cook over medium heat until the water reaches a boil, 6 to 7 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, and cook until the potatoes have a little resistance when pierced by a skewer, about 15 minutes.
3.Add the drained lentils and cook until al dente, about 50 minutes. Add the rice, pushing it down into the liquid. Cover and cook until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
