Four tsp. parsley, chopped
Four tsp. dill, chopped
50 ml extra virgin olive oil
One tablespoon of flour

In a saucepan, sauté the onions and leeks with olive oil for a few minutes; add only the cuttlefish and calamari from the seafood and continue sauteing for a few more minutes.

Step 2

Add about 300 ml of water or as much as it will take to boil and soften the seafood. As soon as they are ready, add the chard, herbs, salt and pepper and, if necessary, add additional hot water. Simmer for about 15 minutes.
