  • Soup

Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups chopped butternut squash
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 4 cans (14 1/2 oz each) reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 2 cups chopped kale, ribs and stems removed, salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
  • Heat olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, and celery and cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, sweet potato, butternut squash, and bay leaves. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally so they don't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the vegetable broth, tomatoes, and chickpeas. Stir in the quinoa and season with fresh rosemary and thyme. Cook for 15 minutes or until quinoa is soft. Stir in the kale and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Serve warm.
