1 onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
6 1/2 cups vegetable broth, divided
1 (14.5-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
6–8 fingerling potatoes, sliced
1 1/2 cups fat-free refried beans
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
Freshly ground black pepper
1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Place the onions, garlic, celery, and carrots in a large pot with 1/2 cup of the vegetable broth. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, until the onions are softened. Add the remaining broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, potatoes, refried beans, bay leaf, parsley, basil, oregano, and black pepper.
