  • 1 leek (white and light green parts only), chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 8 oz Swiss chard leaves shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat; sweat onion and leek until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add garlic, Swiss chard, salt, pepper and thyme; cook until chard is wilted, about 5 minutes.

Add stock and bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer until chard is softened but not darkened, about 10 minutes. Transfer 1 cup (250 mL) to blender and purée; return to pot and heat through.
