Add olive oil to large pot and heat to medium-high heat. Add chopped garlic and onion and saute for a minute or two. Add in chopped ginger, carrots, celery, and zucchini and saute for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add in broth, tomatoes, mushrooms, bay leaf, and seasonings and let come to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 20-25 minutes. Add in kale and beans during the last 5 minutes minutes.
