Greens like Chard, Kale, and Dandelion are cleansing and full of important nutrients.  I only wish that I enjoyed them more :(.  Salads with the baby greens in the spring and summer are great.  But this time of year I really only love them sauteed in butter and garlic.  Even then, I can’t get them in too often.

This soup has been sitting in my ‘to try’ list for years.  I believe that it originated from a Yoga Journal but I cna’t be sure  – it really was years ago that I wrote it down.   I finally decided to give it a go since I don’t eat many greens this time of year.  To my delight, it’s pretty good.  For those of you who like greens, it should be amazing!!

  1. heat the oil in a pan, add the onions with a bit of salt.  stir often until the onions are caramelized (golden brown).  this will take about 20-30 minutes
  2. while the onions are browning, bring the 3 1/2 cups of water and sweet potatoes to a boil.  Add a pinch of salt and the sage.  Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes
  3. Add the kale and chard to the sweet potato water after the 10 minutes along with broth and garlic.  Simmer for 20 minutes
  4. add the onions
  5. blend
  6. enjoy

Each cup of this soup is stuffed with goodness and it’s filling to boot.  Next time that I do a 24 hour fast, this will be my break-fasting meal.

till next time


( I will post pictures soon!)
