Description Edit

This soup is really wonderful, I did triple the garlic and add more red pepper flakes, but this does not taste like diet food (but it in fact it is)! Enjoy! Use vegetable broth to make this vegetarian/vegan.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Bring large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Boil greens for about 5 minutes, just till tender, and then plunge into water to stop cooking.
  3. Squeeze out as much water as possible and set aside (you can do this step before you make the rest of the soup.).
  4. Bring broth to simmer in large pot over med-high heat.
  5. Add garlic and greens, and beans (if using canned, rinse and drain to rid the excess sodium!) Simmer gently for about ten minutes, partially covered.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Ladle soup into bowls.
  8. Pass cheese and pepper flakes at table.
