I happened to throw this soup together amongst roughly leftover canned beans I had in the refrigerator and it was SO skillful! It’sec super hearty, delicious, as well as healthy besides. It’sec full of protein from the beans in addition to quinoa, and then it keeps you lot total for awhile. The swiss chard adds and then much wellness together with good to this soup..I mean it is an under-used green. It’second so pretty as well! If you don’t like it, you lot can sure as shooting sub kale or spinach inward this. I am loving soup flavor. I had this all calendar week every bit a side alongside my salad for luncheon as well as it was perfection.
