A Bowl of Rhubarb Lentil Soup
Rhubarb Lentil Soup


  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped.
  •  large rainbow chard leaves.
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or unsalted butter.
  • 6 tablespoons Greek yogurt.
  • Kosher salt to taste.
  • 2 tablespoons mustard seeds.
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds.
  • 1 tablespoons dark brown sugar.
  • ¾ cup of rinsed and drained French green lentils.
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds.
  • 1 tablespoon minced or grated fresh ginger.
  • ¾ cup of trimmed and sliced rhubarb (sliced into ½ an inch thick pieces).
  • 1 onion, medium sized cut into ½ an inch dice.
  • 1 small jalapeño minced with the seeds.
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric.
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom.
  • 2 tablespoons minced or grated garlic.


Separate the chard from the stems, chop the leaves and slice the stem crosswise into ½ inch pieces.

Over medium heat, heat the oil in a quart heavy duty pot. Add the mustard, coriander seeds, and cumin then stir evenly to coat. Cook this until the mustard seeds begin to pop (this should be about a minute).

After this, turn down the heat to medium-low. Stir in the garlic, cardamom, ginger and turmeric and stir while cooking for approximately 2 minutes or until the broth becomes fragrant.

Add the onions, jalapeño, chard stems and cook this for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally until the onions are translucent. Add the rhubarb, lentils, brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of salt and add five cups of water. 

Let it boil after which you reduce the heat and allow it to
simmer for 30 minutes. Add the chard leaves and continue simmering until the lentils are tender (do not cook until they are falling apart; this should be about five minutes).

Season with salt and brown sugar to taste then serve topped with Greek yogurt and cilantro.
