    PaulaG's Note:

    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. :)

      This is a very flavorful soup, and very easy to put together. I got started too late to use a crockpot, but it was easy to adapt to the stovetop. I used about 2 T. olive oil and sauteed the onion, carrots, garlic, and potato until soft. Then I added the spices and seasonings, the tomatoes, the chard, and the lentils. I combined that well and added the vegetable broth, brought it to a boil, then simmered for 1-1/2 hours. This is a very hearty and filling soup. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7.

      We have discovered my slow cooker is a lemon and after hours on high we had to put in a pot and cook on the stove. Used a mixture of red and green lentils, 1 lb swiss chard, 2 white potatoes, 12 cups pork broth and dried herbs.
