Tips

i use kitchen basics broth...its the best! otherwise, it's probably best to choose a low sodium option. i also add about 1/2 tsp of herb de provence when i add the thyme...the builder didnt have it in the database.


Directions

in a large soup pot or dutch oven: brown pancetta in olive oil. meanwhile chop carrots, onion and fennel. add vegetables once pancetta is browned and crispy.
add salt & pepper and thyme - saute until translucent (about 7 or 8minutes). add tomato paste, cook a few minutes. add rinsed lentils and all the broth. bring to a light boil, then simmer with the lid on until lentils are soft...20 - 40 minutes. finally add cleaned, chopped swiss chard and cook until it is all wilted and combined. season again with salt & pepper if needed. serve.

Serving Size: 5-6 bowls
