Swiss chard is in the same family as beets and spinach, and contains an impressive list of health-promoting nutrients. This delicious combination of lentils, browned onions, cilantro, lemon, and Swiss chard provides a soup that is both healthy and flavorful.


For the Soup

  • 4 cups (lightly packed) sliced ruby Swiss chard (1-inch slices)
