Chard >>> kale. Fight me.

What You Need

  • 1 small- medium white or yellow onion
  • A bunch of garlic. I used ~5 cloves.
  • 1 tsp paprika (I used hot Hungarian paprika)
  • (optional) red pepper flakes or chili powder
  • 1 can of white beans
  • 2-3 cups chicken broth
  • Lemon juice
  • 2 sausages. I used some weird citrus chicken sausage.
  • 2-3 big-ass chard leaves
  • Olive oil

Do This

  • Finely dice your onion and garlic
  • Cut sausages lengthwise and then cut into chunks
  • In some sort of pot (I used my instant pot on saute mode,) heat up enough oil to cover the bottom. Cook onions until translucent.
  • Add sausage, garlic, paprika, and any other desired spices and saute for about 3 minutes
  • Add beans (don’t drain them, you want that sweet-ass aquafaba to thicken the soup) and broth
  • Put a lid on the pot and simmer for 30 minutes (or put your instant pot into soup mode)
  • Cut the stems off the chard leaves. Rip up the leaves into small pieces and toss them into the soup with the lemon juice
  • Cook for ~10 minutes until chard is wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • EAT THE SOUP
