Lentil And Swiss Chard Soup


Lentils are so satisfying that they can be used as a substitute for meat. Top this hearty soup with grated or slivered lemon zest for a refreshing hint of flavor and color. Do not discard the Swiss chard stalks as you can use them in another recipe the as you would with celery.

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Saute the onion and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, lentils and water, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 45 minutes.
  2. Add the swiss chard, cilantro, cumin, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes; cook, stirring until the chard wilts, about 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and serve.
