Lenten Delights - Part 3

Here we go again . Another dish that fits well during the period of Lent, a time when the fan club and I, omit meats from our diet. Skipping meat, is not difficult at all, as I can always fall back on a very satisfying repertoire of vegan dish. Here's one that  was fast and easy to make .

Savory Red Swiss Chard and Bean Soup
Red Swiss Chard Bean Soup

Preparation Notes 

If you have pre-cooked (blanched swiss chard) and pre-cooked beans, there is not much to do . If you beans are not flavored , then flash then in  hot skillet with some EVOO, a few fresh herbs, some garlic.  Then toss in the swiss chard, and cook for a few minutes longer.

Serve with some toasted ciabatta bread and a crisp white wine.  I went for a wheat beer, and it seemed to work well. 

Peace my friends.

Longer days than usual, and lots of New York Metro pressure than I would like on a daily basis.

Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.
