as i mentioned, i’ve been flu-ey and gross for the last week and my appetite has been missing. i dreamt about this soup so i got up and made it! it will cure (or help) what ails you, and if you’re not sick its just a good green tasty soup. in keeping with lazy sick soup, this is a very easy recipe.

CREAMY CHARD AND SPINACH SOUP

olive oil

1 tbsp vegan butter

3 mushrooms, diced

1 huge bunch of red chard, rinsed

1 bunch fresh spinach, rinsed

1/2 red onion, diced mine

2 bay leaves

big pinch chili flakes

6 cloves garlic, minced

1/3 c. adzuki beans, rinsed

2 c. broth

2 c. unsweetened almond milk (or soy)

1/4 c. nutritional yeast

lots of black pepper, salt to taste (use a tasty one if you’ve got one, like truffle or porcini or smoked)

1/3 c. vegan sour cream

remove mangey looking ends from chard stems. chop chard stems small, then leaves roughly. in a pot heat oil and butter. sauté onion and mushroom until nicely browned. add greens and cook down. once wilted, add broth and milk and bring to a boil. add garlic, bay leaves and beans and reduce to a simmer. after maybe 20 minutes, remove bay leaves, add remaining ingredients and puree soup. all done.
