Tuesday Food Blog - Onion and chard soup

I was the lucky recipient of a bag of onions and a quantity of chard the other day and rather than it going to waste I decided to make a soup.

Onion and chard soup with croutons


4 medium sized onions, chopped
 several chard leaves and stalks, roughly chopped
1 tbsp parsley
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 medium sized potatoes, cubed
1 carrot, sliced
2 litres of vegetable stock


Fry the onions off in a little butter until fully soft and slightly browned. Season with salt and black pepper then transfer to a large stock pan. Pour in the vegetable stock, bring to the boil and add the rest of the vegetables and season again. Add the parsley and simmer for a good hour.
Remove from the heat and using a hand blender blend the soup until smooth.

I had enough for three meals and more but the first time I made croutons.

with lentil curls

and with udon noodles

It all tasted great even though the photos belie that fact.

God Bless
