Superfood Soup

This soup is perfect for cold days or whenever you are feeling under the weather.  Ann at Sumptuous Spoonfuls was the inspiration for this power-packed meal.  If you haven't checked out her site, you must.  She has great recipes!  This soup has the trifecta of super leafy greens - spinach, Swiss chard, and kale!  If that's not going to boost your health, nothing will!  Add in some heat with as much Sriracha as you like, and it will ease any congestion you have.  My kids love it and so do we.  Pair it with a simple garden salad and you have a wonderful meal the entire family will enjoy.


3 C potatoes, cubed
1 C carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, quartered
1 bay leaf
4 C Imagine No-Chicken Broth
2 C swiss chard, chopped
2 C kale, chopped
2 C spinach, chopped
1/3 C herbs (I use rosemary and parsley)
1 C plain Greek yogurt
Sriracha to taste
freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Place the potatoes, carrots, onion, garlic, bay leaf, and broth in a large pot and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 25 minutes until the potatoes are very tender.  
  2. Remove the bay leaf and stir in the chard, kale, and spinach.  Continue cooking for a few minutes until the greens are wilted.  Add the herbs.
  3. Transfer the soup to a blender (or use an immersion blender), add the greek yogurt, and blend until smooth.  Serve hot with Sriracha and grated Parmesan.  Enjoy!
