The “Bomb Hearty”, the best vegetable soup ever

I’m sick. It sucks. I felt it coming on. Scratchy throat, flem, coughing. It’s not fun. I don’t know where it came from but I’m doing my best to make it go away. Lots of tea, and of course soup. This was a team effort. I gave my husband instructions and he followed them to the T. He’s the one who named the soup the Bomb Hearty after our favorite actor, Tom Hardy. I married a pretty amazing person if you couldn’t tell already. So without further blabbering, I give you the Bomb Hearty.

Bomb Hearty Vegetable Soup
Makes 6 servings as a side soup, three servings as a dinner soup

Ingredients
1 yellow onion, sliced
6-7 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 12 oz can of garbanzo beans, rinsed
1 carrot, chopped
1-2 ribs of celery, chopped
2 cups of chopped kale
3 cups of vegetable broth
1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes (if you don’t like heat, use 1/2 a tablespoon or none at all because this is SPICY!)
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 Tablespoon dried basil
2 teaspoons dried turmeric (optional, but recommended because its so good for you)
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons chia seeds (optional, but recommended. you don’t notice them.)

Directions
Just throw everything in the pot. Don’t sauté it before. This is the Bomb Hearty. It’s called hearty for a reason. Sautéing the veggies beforehand will make them softer than necessary. Anyways, throw everything in the pot, bring it to a boil. Let it boil for about three minutes, then put the heat on medium low and cook for about 20-25 minutes. Voila! It’s done. Serve it up in a bowl and get your Kleenex box ready, because if you got heavy handed with the red pepper flakes your nose is going to run! Which if your sick and stuffy like me, is totally welcomed. Enjoy!
