 While this is going on mix the flour with some of the soya milk. Put the
 rest of the soya milk in a pan along with the cup of water and heat
 slowly. Stir in the salt, pepper, mustard powder and yeast flakes. Now

 Add the cheezy white sauce you've just made to the cooked chard and
 simmer uncovered for a couple of minutes.
