Recipe: Swiss Chard and Corn Soup

May 12, 2011 Filed under: recipes

It’s Swiss chard season now and while I love it sauteed with garlic and lemon juice, this is my very favorite way to eat it:

Swiss Chard and Corn Soup

4 cups chicken broth (of veggie broth)

1 T butter or olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced (I usually use more like 6)

1 tsp chili powder

1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)

1/2 cup pastina (I’ve used orzo)

1 large bunch of Swiss Chard (you can also use spinach or another green), chopped or torn into large pieces

Saute onion in butter or oil until slightly brown, add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Add chili powder, salt, and pepper, and cook another minute or until very fragrant. Deglaze with stock. Bring to a boil and add the corn and pastina. Cook until pastina is done (approximately 10 minutes). Add Swiss Chard and remove from the heat. Stir until Swiss Chard is wilted.

This soup is wonderful served over grated cheese and accompanied by crusty bread.
