    Engrossed's Note:

    This is a nice, healthy, pleasantly spicy and warming stew like soup. This can also be done in a crock pot but will take all day. The cooking time does not reflect the overnight soaking of the beans. This recipe can also be made with spinach but I don't think it would be as good.

      This was a good stick-to-the-ribs recipe. It was a little bland for my taste so I added romano cheese and served it with garlic bread.

      This was very good. I love chard and it's so good for you. I have to admit, I used canned beans and used chicken stock for the liquid. Served with biscuits. Thanks! Made and reviewed for Fall 2007 PAC.

      This was a very tasty soup. I couldn't find the swiss chard, and had spinach that needed to be used up, so I substituted it. I also used canned beans, added additional vegetable broth (homemade) instead of the reserved bean liquid, and used only white onions. I cut the recipe in half, and followed the instructions completely except for adding the parsley before I started simmering since I was used fresh parsley that had been frozen into an ice cube (I didn't both to melt it first). I served it with some dumplings, and am looking forward to another bowl tomorrow!
