What You'll Need


2 15-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed, drained, and divided

2 cups vegetable stock, divided

1 celery stalk, diced

1 onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (optional)

1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced

1 cup cup frozen corn

1 ½ cups canned white hominy, rinsed and drained

½ tsp cumin powder

½ tsp coriander

1 tsp chili powder

2 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes

2 tsp lime juice

1 8-ounce can green chili peppers

¾ tsp sea salt

2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro


How to Make It


1 Place half the cannellini beans in a blender with 1 cup of vegetable stock, and blend until smooth and creamy.

2 In a large pot over medium-high heat, sauté the celery, onion, garlic, jalapeño, and bell pepper in ½ cup vegetable stock.

Cooking Tips

In place of just green chilies, use a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes mixed with green chilies.

Consider adding some spinach, kale, or arugula to the chili before serving.
