Simplify the Recipe
•  Use pre-sliced French bread.  I used Colombo sour French.

•  Use store-bought hummus instead of homemade.  I like Sabra sun-dried tomato or red pepper hummus.  Safeway, Albertson's, and Whole Foods all carry this brand.  If you can't find the sun-dried or red pepper varieties, get plain hummus and sprinkle the top with either paprika or chili powder and grind some fresh black pepper on top.  Yum!

•  Use pre-cleaned, pre-chopped chard.  Talk about easy!  I added a whole 12 oz. bag to the soup.
