Lentil Soup With Swiss Chard

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by PaulaG

I purchased swiss chard the other day and was looking for something to do with it. I stumbled upon a recipe which I promptly revamped. This has a little "kick" provided by the cayenne pepper. The kick can be enhanced by serving jalapeno pepper sauce on the side. Hope you enjoy!

This is really good & relatively quick. I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of the tomato paste because I prefer brothier soups. It was still pretty stewy with all the veggies. Tasted nice & healthy. :)
