Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions, carrots and celery; sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and curry powder and cumin and sauté about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook for 2 to 3 minutes to reduce the liquid a bit.

Add broth and root vegetables and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes or until tender. Add the beans and almond butter; stir to combine. Add cilantro and kale; cook until thoroughly heated and kale wilts, about 2 minutes.

Serve as is or over rice. Garnish with lime and top with sliced almonds.
