    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash the strips of Swiss Chard; drain.
    2. 2
      In a large saucepan put the lentils and about 9 cups of water, place on high heat. Bring
    3. 3
      to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and add the Swiss Chard. Cover and boil gently for 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile heat the olive oil in a skillet, add onions. Cook on medium heat until translucent; add the garlic paste and cilantro and cook gently for 3 minutes; transfer to the saucepan and mix well with the softened chard and the lentils.
    5. 5
      Continue cooking covered for another 45 minutes until the lentils are tender.
    6. 6
      Slowly incorporate the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper; simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary, serve at room temperature.
    8. 8
      In the winter I tend to add potatoes to this soup, making it more hearty. This soup is nice and tart.

      Absolutely perfect, although I do make it with half the amount of lemon juice (perhaps I use larger lemons). It works also with brown lentils (I prefer it this way). I like adding the zest of the lemon to it also, and, like the previous reviewer, I prefer adding cilantro at the end.
