  2. Bring the yogurt mixture to a boil. Add celery, Swiss chard, and spinach to the yogurt mixture. Continue cooking until the celery softens, 15 - 20 minutes. Serve hot or chill and serve cold.

Made as written except the chard had very long stems, so I substituted that for the celery. The final result was a touch bland, but adding ground pepper helped. The spice level is pretty mild -- maybe habaneros next time? We didn't care for the chilled version and ended up microwaving our bowls a few bites in. It was DELICIOUS warmed. Overall, this soup is a great way to use up old greens, but it needs a little help to be more flavorful and spicy.
