How to Make Vegetarian White Bean Chili

Saute onions


Heat oil in a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Add onions, season with sea salt, and cook until soft.

Season soup

Add garlic to onions and cook until fragrant. Sprinkle in cumin, chili powder, oregano, and smoked paprika and stir until onions are coated with spice mixture.


Add remaining ingredients

Add white beans, green chiles, and broth to pot. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer.


Blend soup


This step helps give the soup a creamy texture, without adding any dairy! You can do this easily with an immersion blender, but you can also carefully transfer 3-4 cups of the soup to a blender and then pour back into soup.
