- 2 Onions

How to make Swiss Chard and Potato Soup:
Step 1 - In a large stock pot I added some olive oil. I then cut the leaves off the Swiss Chard and put them to the side. Next dice up the stems of the Swiss Chard Leaves. Then chop the onions, potatoes and tomatoes and put all of the diced veggies into the pot to saute for about 15 minutes. I then added the broth, chickpeas and the leaves of the Swiss Chard and added the spices and let everything simmer for about a hour......smelled so good.
It was really delicious, not your typical vegetable soup, I believe the spices are what makes it unique; you have to try it.
Oh and I expected it to be nutritious so I did a little search to identify the benefits of Swiss chard, as this is the main ingredient.
Benefits of Swiss Chard:
They say that a small serving of Swiss Chard covers your daily requirements for Vitamins A, K & Vitamin C. Swiss Chard is packed with Antioxidants and full of fiber, it also helps to lower blood sugar which works for me.

To clean your Swiss chard, you can either soak the leaves for a while before washing them or simply rinse under running water while washing the leaves well. To soak, fill a large bowl with cool water, or use the stopper of your sink to fill up the basin.
The flavor is similar to beets and spinach, with slight bitterness, and strong earthy flavor.
Removing the stems from the leaves and then properly cooking them until soft is the best way to avoid any bitterness.
Swiss chard is a great source of vitamin A and vitamin K and a good source of vitamin C and magnesium. Swiss chard also contains the antioxidants beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Vitamin A plays a significant role in normal formation and maintenance of many organs including the heart, lungs and kidneys.
