Ingredients

    1 medium carrot coarsely chopped
    1 small zucchini coarsely chopped
    1 small yellow squash coarsely chopped
    1 small red onion
    2 tbsp olive oil
    2 garlic cloves
    3 cans chicken broth
    4 cups Swiss chard
    1 can great northern beans (15.5 oz) rinsed and drained
    1 can diced tomatoes untrained
    1 tsp dried thyme
    ½ tsp dried oregano
    ¼ tsp pepper
    ¼ cup parmesan cheese

Directions

In Dutch oven or soup kettle, sauté carrot, zucchini, yellow squash, and onion in oil until tender. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute longer. Add broth, Swiss chard, beans, tomatoes, thyme, salt, oregano, and pepper.

Bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes or until chard is tender. Just before serving, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Tip: I prefer to use fire roasted tomatoes for an added kick of flavor. Depending on your tastes - add garlic as needed.

    Are you kidding?? Impossible to follow! You don't even say how the chard supposed to be prepared? You say to add ALL of the ingredients, but they're not ALL listed. How small is a small, medium or large? You have no measures for anything! Go away!! - 7/17/13

  • I made this to use some of my vegetable harvest and varied the vegetables according to my garden's yield. I subbed some carnival squash for the zucchini, used fresh tomatoes and LOTS of extra chard. I sauteed the chard stems with garlic and onion to - 10/28/12
