1/2 teaspoon smokey paprika
1/2 teaspoon celery salt

Clean/rise all veggies. Peel and then chop onion into large chunks. Top the peppers and take out seeds, slice in half, then quarters (each 1/2 should have 4 slices then). Leave peel on potatoes, dice into large chunks. Clean kale take off stem and chop roughly. Slice asparagus into 1/2 inch slices. Peel garlic leave whole. Cut breasts into halves.

Serve in bowls over cooked yolk-less noodles, along with warm slices of herb cheese bread.
