4 cups chopped kale
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tsp olive oil. 
2. Add onion and carrot to pan. Cook 4 minutes. Add garlic. Stir. Cook 1 minute. Add spices. Stir. Cook 30 seconds.
3. Stir in broth, water and beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
