Northern Bean, Rainbow Chard and Porcini Mushrooms Soup with dried Porcini Mushroom and Nutmeg dust

Soup, it’s what’s for dinner. Here’s a beautiful and simple soup I made for lunch, using rainbow chard. This soup takes about 30 minutes to prepare. It’s very versatile and you can use chickpeas, lentils or even add some quinoa to it, allow yourself to be creative.

Soups are very forgiving, easy to make and can be loaded with nutrients in just one pot. I added four cloves of garlic to this one, to help keep my immune system healthy and a pinch of red pepper flakes to give it a little kick.

If you don’t like porcini mushrooms you can add shiitakes. However, I personally love the earthiness of the porcini mushrooms, but shiitakes make an excellent substitution. Check out all the variety of soups on my blog and remember to always Set the Table with Love one soup bowl at a time.
