a super simple and healthy soup with chard, brown rice, a 6 minute egg + lime & green onions.


  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced (a little less than 1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 head of green chard, washed and roughly chopped
  • about 5 cups of good tasting stock (I used leftover turkey stock from thanksgiving)
  • 4 eggs
  • lime
  • green onion
  • chili sauce (some like it hot!)


  1. heat olive oil over medium heat in a small soup pot.
  2. sauté diced onion until translucent and starting to brown.
  3. add chopped garlic and cook for one minute more
  4. add washed and chopped green chard and cook until slightly wilted.
  5. pour in stock and bring to a boil.
  6. reduce to a simmer and cook until greens are tender, about 15 minutes.
  7. while green are cooking place 4 eggs in a small pan, completely covered with water. turn heat on high and bring to a boil.
  8. reduce heat to medium (the water should still be simmering fairly quickly) and set a timer for 6 minutes.
  9. after 6 minutes drain hot water and run cool water over the eggs a few times, and leave covered with cool water until ready to use.
  10. taste soup for salt and adjust if necessary.
  11. to serve, spoon 1/2 a cup of cooked brown rice into a bowl, ladle in some broth and greens, cut one egg in half and nestle into the greens, top with green onions and a squeeze of lime. serve with your favorite chili sauce.
