favorite autumn squash with chard slow cooker recipe

Ingredients
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 1/2 cups dried chickpeas, rinsed
1 pound butternut squash, peeled and cut into large pieces
1 bunch Swiss chard, leaves and stems separated and roughly chopped
1 piece parmesan cheese rind, plus grated parmesan for topping (optional)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Crusty bread and/or lemon wedges, for serving



Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and red pepper flakes and cook 1 minute. Stir in 1/2 cup water, scraping up any browned bits. Transfer the contents of the skillet to a 6-quart slow cooker.

Add the chickpeas, squash, chard stems (not the leaves), the parmesan rind, if using, 2 teaspoons salt and 7 cups water to the slow cooker. Stir, then cover and cook on low, 8 hours.

Just before serving, lift the lid and stir in the chard leaves; cover and continue cooking 10 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and stir to slightly break up the squash. Discard the Parmesan rind, if used. Ladle the stew into bowls; top with the grated parmesan, if desired, and serve with bread and/or lemon wedges.

Summary: Asian boyband AU.
Author's Notes: God, I really hope you know at least a little about the Asian pop industry. In case you don't, parent entertainment companies often construct their stars from the bottom up before allowing them to debut. They assign them names, personality archetypes, hairstyles, etc. In k-pop especially, they also assign the boys to each other in "pairings" to up fan appeal, and this practice is called "skinship." If you want to know more I wrote a primer on the k-pop industry, specifically centered around a band called Super Junior, which you can read here.

I'm sorry it's such a specialized AU, but you said any AU was fine, and once the idea struck me it would not leave me alone. Please enjoy.

Thank you to my twitter friends for not telling me this was a horrible idea.
