      I picked this recipe because of how healthy it is. My family didn't care for it too much. I liked it. It is a bland soup. The only thing I did different was add extra chard and I used dried dill as I didn't have any fresh. I froze the left overs in small containers for some quick lunches. Thanks for sharing.
