3 cups of water
1 can of cannellini beans
2 tbsp olive oil
½ cup chopped sweet onion
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
2 stalk of celery, chopped

In a large pot, heat about 2 tbsp of olive oil.

Add in ½ chopped sweet onion,

Chop up vegetables and put them in the pot. Do not add the kale yet.

Cook on medium/high for about 10 minutes.

Then add 1 tsp of salt, some freshly ground black pepper, 2 cloves of minced garlic, and your favorite seasonings (I used oregano, bay leaves, red pepper flakes, and thyme) and cook for about 1 minute until you can smell the garlic.

Then add 1 can of crushed tomatoes & 1 can of diced tomatoes (14 oz cans), 1 cup of quinoa (rinsed), and 32 oz veggie broth along with 3 cups of water (or do more veggie broth)

Cover, bring to a boil, and then lower to a simmer & cook for about 30 minutes until the quinoa is cooked.

Then add 1 can of beans of cannellini beans.

Cook for another 3 ish minutes, then add your washed and chopped kale and simmer for another 3 minutes here.
