1. Coat the bottom of a wide, deep pot with olive oil. Add potatoes, salt, and pepper then stir until the potatoes are coated in oil. Cook on medium heat with the lid on, stirring once every few minutes to unstick potatoes from the bottom of the pot.
2. After about 5 minutes, add onions and garlic. Stir.
3. When you can chop a potato chunk in half with the edge of a wooden spoon, add carrots, celery, turmeric, curry powder, and more salt and pepper. Stir.
4. Cook with the lid on for 10 minutes, or until all the veggies are fairly soft. Add broth, water, soy sauce/liquid aminos, and miso paste.
5. Bring everything up to a boil, then stir and reduce to a simmer. Let simmer for at least 10 minutes and up to an hour--the longer the simmer the deeper the flavor, but it's already going to be pretty damn good.
6. Serve with parsley, a spritz of lime, and a splash of hot sauce.
*If you want to really bulk up this soup, you can add pre-cooked lentils and rice when you turn everything down to a simmer. Perfect for a snow day!
