Makes: 8 -1 1/4 cup- servings Total Time: 1 hr
Category: Soups/Chilis Sub Category: Soups & Stews

what you need
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large yellow onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. plus 3 cups water, divided
  • 1/4 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 bunch green chard (about 1 pound)
  • 14 cups gently packed spinach (about 12 ounces) stems trimmed
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, or more to taste
make it
1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add onions and 1/4 tsp. salt; cook, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add 2 Tbsp. water and cover. Cook, stirring frequently until the pan cools down, and then occasionally, always covering the pan again until the onions are greatly reduced and have a deep caramel color, 25-30 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, combine the remaining 3 cups water and 3/4 tsp. salt in a soup pot or Dutch oven; add rice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Trim the white ribs out of the chard (save for another use, such as to add to a stir-fry or other soup). Coarsely chop the chard greens and spinach.

3. When the rice has cooked for 15 minutes, stir in the chard greens. Return to a simmer; cover and cook for 10 minutes. When the onions are caramelized, stir a little of the simmering liquid into them/ add them to the rice along with the spinach, broth and cayenne. Return to a simmer, cover and cook, stirring once, until the spinach is tender but still bright green, about 5 minutes more.

4. Puree the soup in the pot with an immersion blender until perfectly smooth or in a regular blender in batches (return it to the pot). Stir in 1 Tbsp. lemon juice. Taste and add more lemon juice, if desired. Garnish each bowl of soup with a drizzle of olive oil.
