  • 2 celery stalks, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes (with juices)

  • 6 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

  • 1 bay leaf

  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

  • 2 cups kale or spinach, chopped

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

  • Olive oil for sautéing

 

Instructions:

  1. Sauté Vegetables: In a large pot, heat a bit of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, carrots, and celery. Sauté for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are softened.

  2. Add Garlic and Spices: Add minced garlic to the pot and sauté for an additional minute until fragrant. Stir in ground cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, turmeric, salt, and black pepper. Cook for another minute to toast the spices.
