Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 diced onion
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 4 tbsp curry powder
  • 8 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 14.5 ounce can of fire-roasted crushed tomatoes

    Instructions

    • Heat the oil in a large pot and saute onions, garlic, and celery for about 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Be careful not to overcook; the vegetables should stay a little firm so they maintain more of their nutrients. Add salt and pepper to taste. Leftovers are GREAT!!!
