  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup chopped carrots

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 8 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil

  • 4 cups chopped kale (ribs removed)

  • 1 teaspoon red curry paste

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp

  • 2 (8 ounce) cans chopped tomatoes

  • 1 (8 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 lemon, juiced


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir mushrooms, onion, carrots, and garlic in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Pour chicken broth into the saucepan; add basil. Bring broth to a boil, reduce heat to low, place a cover on the saucepan, and simmer until the basil seasons the broth, about 10 minutes.

  3. Stir kale, curry paste, salt, and pepper into the broth; bring to a boil again, reduce heat to low, and simmer until kale softens, about 10 minutes.

  4. Stir shrimp, tomatoes, kidney beans, and lemon juice into broth; cook at a simmer until shrimp is bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 10 minutes.
