SERVES

TOTAL TIME
1 hour

INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons Natural Grocers® Brand Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 small organic onion, (yellow, white, or red), diced
2 medium organic carrots, chopped
2 stalks organic celery, chopped
2 medium organic garlic cloves, minced
thumb-sized piece organic ginger, peeled and minced (about 1 ½ tablespoons) or 1 ½ teaspoons Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Ground Ginger
4 cups organic vegetable broth, (or sub chicken or bone broth for non-vegetarian version)
1 (14.5-ounce) can Natural Grocers Brand Organic Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 (15.5-ounce) can Natural Grocers Brand Organic Garbanzo Beans, drained
1 teaspoon Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Turmeric
1 teaspoon Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Real Salt
1 teaspoon Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Ground Organic Black Pepper
1 (5-ounce) container organic Super Greens, (superfood baby greens: red and green Swiss chard, tat soi, arugula and spinach)
1 organic jalapeño, seeded, cut half into thin slices and dice the other half (for extra heat leave the seeds in)
Optional toppings
sliced organic jalapeño
Natural Grocers Brand Organic Parmesan Cheese Shreds or vegan alternative
chopped organic parsley or cilantro

DIRECTIONS
1. Place a large soup pot over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once hot, add the onion, carrot, and celery. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 8 minutes. Adjust the temperature if needed to allow the onion to become translucent without browning.
2. Add the garlic and ginger, stir to combine, and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently, until garlic becomes fragrant (do not brown).
3. Add the broth, canned tomatoes, beans, the seasonings, and the diced jalapeño (reserve the slices for serving). Stir to combine, increase the temperature, cover and bring to a boil; once boiling, immediately reduce to a simmer. Stir and place the lid slightly ajar, allowing steam to escape. Let the soup simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25-30 minutes (until carrot and celery are soft). Add the greens, stir, and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
4. Serve with optional toppings and crusty bread and butter.
