    spatchcock's Note:

    Just made this for lunch on my third day of the south beach diet. It is really wonderful--of course, I did triple the garlic and add more red pepper flakes, but this does not taste like diet food! Enjoy! Use vegetable broth to make this vegetarian/vegan.

      I have made this before, and it is just wonderful (and very SBD friendly. I use a big bag of "Chard of Many Colors" from Trader Joe's, with canellini beans. If I want the soup as a meal by itself, I'll throw in some turkey sausage, but it's a wonderful soup either way. Thanks for posting this!

      Wow! This has got a TON of flavor for such a healthy soup. I did double the beans as we were having it with a salad so I wanted a bit more substance. Also, I boiled the garlic with the broth, which I think opened the flavor a bit. This soup keeps wonderfully for leftovers (I used Kale) and makes a great take-to-work snack. Thanks!
