Recipe Ingredients for Swiss Chard Soup

8 cup Soup, Chicken Broth
5 cup raw Rainbow Swiss Chard
5 cup, chopped Kale
1 onion Yellow Onion
2 cup Cannellini (White Kidney) Beans, Organic
2 link Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage

Recipe Directions for Swiss Chard Soup

  1. In large soup pot, put chicken stock, dried basil, and ground fennel and bring to a low simmer. Simmer broth and herbs while you prepare other ingredients.

  2. Squeeze sausage out of casing and saute in small amount of olive oil until sausage is well browned, breaking up with the back of metal turner as it browns. Remove sausage, and in same pan saute onions until they are softened, adding more olive oil if needed. Scrape browned sausage bits off bottom of the pan as the onions cook. When onions are soft, add garlic and saute 1-2 minutes.

  3. To stock in pot add beans with juice, rinsing out each can with about 1/4 cup water. Add onions and garlic, deglazing pan with water and adding to stock mixture. Simmer about 10 minutes.

  4. While stock and beans simmer, wash chard well, cut off stems, lay about six leaves on top of each other, fold in half lengthwise, and cut into ribbons about 1/2 inch wide. I like to cut the ribbons into smaller lengths so you don't get long pieces of chard which are hard to get into the spoon.

  5. Add sausage to pot and simmer about 10 minutes. Then add chard ribbons and simmer about 10 minutes more, or until chard is softened and flavors are well blended.. Serve soup hot, with freshly grated parmesan cheese to add to each bowl.
