  • 4 yellow onions
  • 1/4 cup ghee (sub butter)
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • 2 1/2 cups swiss chard, sliced into thin ribbons
  • 4 cups Zoup! Good, Really Good™ Chicken Bone Broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 French baguette
  • 3 oz gruyere cheese, sliced


  1. Slice your onions into thin moon-shaped slivers. Dice and mince your shallot and garlic cloves. 

  2. Heat a large stock pot over medium-low heat. Add in ghee. Once melted add in onions, bay leaves, thyme, salt, diced shallot, and minced garlic. 

  3. Cook with the lid on for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

  4. Meanwhile, slice your swiss chard into thin ribbons by discarding the stems and chopping the leaves. Set aside.

  5. After 40 minutes, stir in your flour and cook for two minutes. 

  6. Add in swiss chard, Zoup! Good, Really Good™ Chicken Bone Broth, and pepper. Stir and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Stir often. 

  7. With 10 minutes left to cook, heat your oven to broil. Slice your baguette into 1" thin slices and lay flat on a baking sheet. Add slices of gruyere to each baguette. Broil for 2-4 minutes.

  8. Ladle your soup into 3-4 bowls and top each bowl with 2-3 slices of cheesy baguette. 

  9. EAT UP.
