Total time 30 mins
Yield Serves 4
We like the robust flavor of red Swiss chard in this soup recipe from Sunset reader Juliet Grossman, of Temecula, California. You could also make it with green Swiss chard, which is milder, or spinach.

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, halved and sliced
  • 1 bunch red Swiss chard, chopped
  • 1 can (15 oz.) white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 qt. reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • Parmesan cheese
