Ingredients
  • 3¼ cup cooked and drained Chili Smith Painted Pony Beans (about ½ bag)
  • ¾ cup organic pumpkin puree (about ½ can)
  • 1 Tbsp organic no-salt tomato paste
  • 1½ cup no-oil vegetable broth - ideally homemade with no salt, oil, or sugar added
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp Burlap & Barrel Smoked Pimentón Paprika
  • 2 small organic lime zested & juiced
  • 3 cloves organic garlic, minced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 organic apple, diced (we like it with the skin left on)
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
Instructions
  1. In a high speed blender, add the pumpkin, ¼ cup Chili Smith Painted Pony beans, tomato paste, coriander, cumin, Burlap & Barrel Smoked Pimentón Paprika and lime juice. Process until smooth.
  2. In a large saucepan, sauté the onions.
  3. Once the onions are translucent, add the garlic and sauté for a minute or two.
  4. Add the apples and celery, and continue to sauté until soft.
  5. Pour in a couple tablespoons of broth to deglaze the pan and then pour in the remainder of the broth, the puree from the blender, the lime zest, and the remaining beans.
  6. Bring to a low simmer and cook for about 30 minutes until the flavors have come together and enjoy!
