This is a wonderfully healthy soup! It is a good healthy hearty soup that holds up well for the next day. A nice blend of rich flavors and yet so simple to make.
Suggestions for changes and additions from are: Double the tomatoes. It is also good with a spicy sausage, like turkey Andouille. Add more garlic and celery. Instead of Swiss chard, use collard greens. Add chipotle chili powder and/or a bit of liquid smoke and some cayenne to taste. It's wonderfully deep in flavor. Plus, a touch of sea salt when serving really brings out the flavors. Add a spicy Mexican tomato sauce call Chili el Pato from the Mexican food section of the grocery store for a little zing. Try sautéing the onions in some red pepper flakes for a little more depth of flavor.

This healthy soup tastes like you slaved over a hot stove all day but comes together fast enough to eat any weeknight. Sweet potatoes, carrots and kale make this delicious. Using steel-cut oats as your grain of choice makes the soup thick and hearty, too!

This hearty soup will warm you from the inside out.
This is just a 'toss-together dish' I came up with, easy and nutritionally sound (I think).
PLEASE don't use dried herbs. Fresh herbs are a must for anyone learning to enjoy fresh healthy food.Submitted by LISAMISH
Well, I was so excited with my first posting this evening (and I had a restaurant sized can of black beans open) that I decided to give another recipe a try! I hope you use this as a "guide", as I do with all recipes, and add or omit whatever you think will make it better. I look forward to your comments :)
Because I cook for several family members with different dietary needs, I cannot make it as "hot", salty or spicy as I like. You may add hot sauce or cayenne or ?
As I am new to Spark People, and posting recipes ANYWHERE, I had some difficulty with the calculations--I can assure you that this is a FAT FREE recipe, however no matter what I tried I still came up with some fat in the calculations.
We topped this with a T of fat free sour cream, T of Kraft fat free cheddar and some chopped green onions. NO added fat, LOTS of added flavor (don't forget to add this into your calorie total if you do the same). And if you can afford a little "fat", by all means add some crumbled tortilla chips and a slice of avacado....yumm...
I hope you try this soup and enjoy it!Submitted by PLAINANDFANCY1
Simple and quick to make, this soup is high in potassium, vitamin A, manganese, and folate, and some protein, this is a a good soup to use up some of your spice cabinet spices that are just sitting there; they can be swapped, omitted, switched out, etc.Submitted by SPARKNB
