I especially love making Autumn Soup - because it's easy and it uses Swiss Chard - which I always grow in the garden. Swiss Chard is a cool weather crop - so it's perfect for this comfort food soup.
An easy and delicious soup to make - and can be easily improvised by adding any extra vegetables that you have on hand. Add a slice of sourdough bread and it's a wonderful comfort food meal to gather others around the table. Enjoy!
Autumn Soup Serves 4-6
1-2 T olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, smashed or minced
6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2-3 carrots, cut into rounds

1 15oz can pinto beans (or, any combo you like)
1 bunch kale or chard, chopped

Salt + Pepper to taste
