Course dinner, lunch, Main Course, Soup
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 cups broth (I use Better Than Bouillon No Chicken flavor)
  • 2 cup water
  • 6 cups roughly chopped greens (swiss chard, kale, or a mix) (remove stems before chopping)
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp miso
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (more if you like it spicy!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion (optional, for topping)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a soup pot over medium.  Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softening but not brown.  Add the minced garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.

  2. Add in the broth and water and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium and add the greens, chickpeas, and crushed red pepper.  Cook for about 5 minutes until the greens are cooked/softened/wilted.

  3. Remove the pot from the heat.  Take a few tablespoons of broth and add to a small bowl.  Allow broth to cool for a few minutes, then add the miso and whisk/stir until well mixed.  Add the broth/miso mixture back into the soup pot and gently stir to combine.  

  4. Top with green onions and serve!
