"Excellent. Just that simple. I used fresh tomatoes (skinned and seeded) and homemade chicken broth made from a rotisserie chicken carcass. Along with the celery, onion and carrots I added the ribs, ..." See moresliced, from the Swiss chard. Wish there were leftovers."
"This made a good soup which had a nice sweetness to it. -Used more greens and did not measure a thing Just put it in a pot and add he greens at the end..." See more"
"A perfect soup for any time of year! I picked up some chard at the farmers market and wanted to find a healthy dish to make with it. I came across this recipe and loved it for a nice light summer dinn..." See moreer! I didn't measure; just chopped and cooked. Following the great tip from Naples, I added the diced chard stems with the mirepoix...no need to be wasteful! I didn't add the full 2# of chicken, because I didn't want to :) and I subbed a 15oz can of diced tomatoes for the crushed, as it's what I had on hand and wouldn't want to open a can for just a cup anyways. I used farfalle because I didn't want to buy pasta just for this. A lovely recipe that has great flavor! I served with fresh fruit and a garlic-herb bread. Happy, satisfied bellies! (Until my boyfriend jokingly asks "what's for dinner?" when he's hungry again in an hour or so.) :)"
