DIRECTIONS

  • Add all the vegetables (down to celery) to a large pot with a little water. Cover and get them cooking to soften 'em up.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the garlic, oil, and herbs.
  • When the onion is translucent (after about 5-7 minutes) remove the lid to let most of the extra water evaporate. When it has, add the garlic mixture and stir well.
  • Cover again and let vegetables caramelize a little, stirring every minute or so for 2-3 minutes.
  • When they're starting to smell really good (but before they stick and burn!), add the salt, pepper, liquids, beans, tomato paste and soy sauce. Stir well and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and let simmer gently for 20 minutes.
  • If desired, add the chopped greens a few minutes before serving. Take the pot off the heat, stir them in and cover the pot to let them wilt instead of getting overcooked and mushy.
  • Ladle it up and enjoy!
