Yum. This was super easy, and it turned out deliciously. We added a Parmesan cheese rind to the pot. Didn't use nutritional yeast. Cooked the pasta separately. And used spinach instead of kale.
1 large Onion, peeled and chopped
2 large Carrots (or about 12 Baby Carrots), sliced like nickels
2 Celery Stalks, washed and chopped with leaves
4-5 Cloves Garlic, peeled and minced
8 cups (or 64-ish ozs) Vegetable Stock
2 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast (optional, but I've recently been cooking with it!)
2 cans (15.5 ozs) Diced Tomatoes
1 tablespoon Greek Spices (Oops. No Oregano. But my #FoodiePenPals box had a tin of Greek Spices!)
2-3 medium New Potatoes (red skin), scrubbed and diced
4-5 handfuls Chopped Kale (little to no ribs - I buy a big bag to last a week)
1-2 cups of Multigrain Pasta
1 can (15.5 oz) Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
S&P (salt and pepper - to taste) and Red Pepper Flakes
- Saute the onion, carrots and celery with 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil or Coconut Oil or try a Water Saute (without any oil) in a large pot over medium heat for 10 minutes.
- Stir in garlic - don't let it burn.
- Add vegetable stock, nutritional yeast, tomatoes, spices, potatoes, kale, pasta and beans.
Simmer for 30-45 minutes.
