  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 7 cups vegetable broth
  • ¾ cup wild rice
  • 1 (14 ounce or 400 gram) can diced tomatoes in juice
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 medium sweet potato, scrubbed and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 3 cups chopped fresh kale leaves, packed
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  1. Coat the bottom of a large pot with the oil and place it over medium heat.

  2. Add the onion, carrot, and celery. Sweat the veggies for about 5 minutes, until they begin to soften, stirring frequently.

  3. Add the garlic and sauté it with the veggies for about 1 minute, until it becomes very fragrant.

  4. Stir in the broth, wild rice, tomatoes, tomato paste, and rosemary. Raise the heat and bring the soup to a boil.

  5. Lower the heat and allow the soup to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  6. Stir in the sweet potato and allow the soup to simmer for about 15 minutes more, until the wild rice is softening but not quite done.

  7. Stir in the kale and allow the soup to continue simmering for about 15 minutes more, or until the kale is wilted and the wild rice reaches your desired tenderness.

  8. Remove the pot from heat and season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.

  9. Ladle into bowls and serve.
