Swiss Chard With Hot and Sour Broth

Late fall and early winter are the very best season for swiss chard and great chard should be avaialable locally right now!
 
Hot and sour soup is a favorite of mine. The broth is a nice partner to the strong flavor of the chard. This eats as a side vegetable or main course and not a soup. The broth should be simply a garnishing sauce in a deep bowl of Swiss chard. This dish is delightfully low in fat and calories.
