Sautee onion, carrot, and celery in olive oil in the bottom of a heavy pot. Throw in some whole peppercorns. Cut potato into small cubes and cook until the potato begins to soften. Sprinkle with curry powder. Add chorizo and sautee until the chorizo begins to cook. Add broth and stir in ~2 teaspoons harissa. While this simmers cut up a bunch of kale very small (remove stems). Throw in kale and 1 can of beans (partially but not completely drained). Stir so the kale wilts and darkens. 

Blend about half the soup to thicken the base. 

Eat and decide winter might just be bearable after all.
