Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil, onion, garlic, and chard stems, in a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and add the grated ginger. Cook for another 3 minutes.
  2. Add the squash and cayenne pepper, cook for 1 minute, stirring. Add the turkey and 4 cups of water or broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove ¼ cup of broth from the soup and whisk with the almond butter, until smooth.
  4. 5 minutes before serving, mix in the almond butter mixture and the ripped chard leaves. Cook for 5 minutes or until the chard is well wilted. Taste for seasonings then serve.

Chef Tips

You can also use peeled butternut squash in this recipe.
If you are experiencing fatigue, there are no prizes for soldiering on. Do not hesitate to take the easier route and buy pre-cut winter squash when cooking a soup like this.
