  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons flaked coconut

  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic

  • 3 cups stemmed and chopped Swiss chard

  • 1 quart vegetable stock

  • 1 (16 ounce) can coconut milk

  • ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, or more to taste

  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion, coconut flakes, and garlic until onion is softened, about 10 minutes.

  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil; add chard and cook just until leaves become brighter green, about 3 minutes. Transfer chard to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.

  3. Stir chard, vegetable stock, and coconut milk into onion mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until soup is heated through, about 10 minutes. Top soup with Parmesan cheese; season with salt and pepper.
