This lush and aromatic vegetarian dish is made with a delicious combination of leek, onion, sweet potato, chard, spinach and ginger. For a slightly deeper flavor, stir 1/2 teaspoon of tamari into the soup prior to serving.


  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1 large leek, white and light green parts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bunch spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large bunch green chard, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • fresh lemon juice


  1. Place the oil into a medium-sized sauté pan over low heat. Once warm, add the onion and sprinkle with a pinch of salt; cook, stirring occasionally, for 35 minutes to caramelize.
  2. Put the sweet potato, water, leek, spinach, chard, ginger and a few pinches of salt into a soup pot and then bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 35 minutes, covered. Stir in the caramelized onions and the broth, and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  4. Season the soup to taste with fresh lemon juice and additional salt and pepper, and then serve immediately.
