Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large white onion, diced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 large carrot, cut into 1/2-in. pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 3 ribs celery, cut into 1/2-in. pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 2 15.5-oz. cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in beans, cumin, and salt; cook, stirring often, until toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes.

Step 2

 Add broth; increase heat to high and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly reduced, about 6 minutes. Stir in kale and quinoa; cover and cook until kale and quinoa are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in oregano.
