Potato swiss chard soup

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 medium Onion; chopped
2 Ribs celery; chopped
2 Garlic cloves; minced
4 cups Red potatoes; (cubed)
1 medium Carrot; cut in chunks
1 Bay leaf
5 cups Vegetable stock
4 cups Chopped Swiss chard
¼ cup Chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons Dried thyme; crushed
½ teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper

This was in the local paper (Marin Independent Journal) and was one of the best soups I've tasted:

In a soup pot, saute onions, celery and garlic until softened - about 5 minutes. Add potatoes, carrot, bay leaf and stock.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.

Add Swiss chard, parsley, thyme and cook an additional 10 minutes. Add black pepper. Remove from heat. Puree in batches in food processor (I used blender).

If serving hot, reheat 5 minutes. If serving cold, cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Serves 4.
