      There is no recipe. It's all technique- I just put stuff together with the materials to hand.

      sweat aromatics with salt and some kind of bouquet garni.

      deglaze with stock of your choice, add the main ingredient, in this case part of a mess of chickpeas and einkorn wheat i had earlier made in a pressure cooker for various projects and some chopped kielbasa.

      add water to cover, spice to taste and bring to boil, reduce to simmer, cover, simmer till veg tender, uncover, add chopped collards (or kale or any other hearty green) (and noodles if it's a small batch), shut off heat and let collards cook in hot soup, about 10 minutes. taste, adjust seasoning, add a little vinegar to cut the richness, all to taste. you add the greens at the end to preserve the color and prevent overcooking, which is a very bad thing with all brassicas.

      Ah...that is the best way to make soups, with what is on hand. I think they come out better than "structured" soups!
