Flat-Belly Creamy Chard and Spinach Soup Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 red bell pepper, diced
  3. 1/2 cup green onions
  4. 12 ounces sliced Swiss chard
  5. 2 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach
  6. 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  7. 2 1/2 cups water
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 3 tablespoons natural almond butter
  10. 2 tablespoons less-fat cream cheese

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add the bell pepper and green onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 7 minutes or until the pepper is tender.
  2. Add the chard, and cook for 1 minute or until wilted. Add the spinach, broth, water, and salt, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until the chard and spinach are very tender.
  3. Add the almond butter and cream cheese, and cook for 1 minute or until they've melted and the soup is lightly thickened. Transfer 2 cups of the soup to a blender or food processor, and puree. Stir it back into the soup, gently reheating if necessary. Serve hot.
