Set a heavy bottom pot on medium high heat. Once hot, add olive oil, onion, celery and carrots. Cook for 3 -5 minutes until the onions turn somewhat brown. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
Then add in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cover and simmer for at least 20 minutes.
Season to taste with sea salt & pepper. Garnish and enjoy!
