Lentil Coconut Kale Soup

Lentil Coconut Kale Soup. Technically speaking I love all soup and with the nasty cold front that is covering most of the US what better way to stay warm than snuggling with loved ones and eating a big bowl of hot soup?!?

1/2 c chopped onions
1/2 c chopped celery
3 small to medium zucchini, chopped
3 potatoes chopped, any variety
1 t fresh grated ginger
2 T oil (coconut recommended)
1 T turmeric
2 t curry powder
2 c cooked lentils
1 c fresh chopped kale
4 c vegetable broth
1/4 c braggs amino acids
1 (15 oz) can of light coconut milk
1 c of fresh spinach leaves

1. Add carrots, celery, and onion to a large soup pot. Cook on medium heat until translucent about 5-7 minutes. 
2. Add chopped zucchini and potatoes. Let cook for 5 minutes. 
3. Add in freshly grated ginger, oil, turmeric, curry, and fresh cracked pepper to taste, stir.
