• 2 cups vegetable stock, divided
• 1 celery stalk, diced
• 1 onion, diced

• ½ teaspoon ground cumin
• ½ teaspoon ground coriander
• 1 teaspoon chili powder
• 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
• 2 teaspoons lime juice
• One 8-ounce can green chili peppers
• ¾ teaspoon sea salt
• ¼ teaspoon black pepper


Place half of the cannellini beans in a blender with 1 cup of vegetable stock and blend until smooth and creamy.  In a large soup pot over medium-high heat, sauté celery, onion, garlic, jalapeño, and bell pepper in ½ cup of the vegetable stock.  To the pot of vegetables, add remaining ½ cup vegetable stock, remaining half of the beans, creamy bean mixture, and remaining ingredients.
