INGREDIENTS

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb of carrots (peeled and chopped)
1/2 medium onion, diced
14.5 oz fire roasted tomatoes (learn how to roast tomatoes here)
2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
2 handfuls of kale

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Toss carrots in 1 Tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes.

In a dutch oven heat 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add garlic and continue cooking for another minute or two until fragrant.

Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. When it reaches a boil, reduce to low heat and simmer covered for 5 minutes until heated through. Blend mixture in a blender or use an immersion blender until smooth and creamy. Return to the dutch oven and return to low heat. Add a few handfuls of chopped kale and simmer covered for 10 minutes until kale is wilted.

Enjoy!                  Psalm 37:1-5
