Ingredients

  • 7 stalks Bright Lights® Swiss Chard
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups diced butternut squash (See Tip)
  • 2 cups diced potatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Remove the colorful stems from the Bright Lights® and cut the stems into 1/2-inch pieces; set aside. Cut the leaves of 2 of the stems in half lengthwise and then into ¼-inch ribbons; set those aside as well. (Wrap up the remaining 5 leaves and save them for a salad or another use.)
  2. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil until hot. Sauté onion and garlic for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add chicken broth, Bright Lights® stems, (not the leafy part), squash, potatoes, nutmeg, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the cut-up Bright Lights® leaves and continue to simmer for 5 to 8 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
    Salad Savoy Tip! Rather than trying to cut up fresh butternut squash, pick up a 16ounce package of fresh diced butternut squash in your produce aisle. It’s a whole lot easier!
