SAFFRON-INFUSED WHITE CHILI
The white chili powder used in this recipe can be found in Indian groceries or can be easily substituted with another variety of chili powder to taste.
Yield: 10 servings
6 cremini or mushrooms, chopped
In a large stockpot, sauté the mushrooms, onion, zucchini, jalapeños, bell pepper, chopped herbs, and garlic in 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of the olive oil over medium-high heat until soft, about 13 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking. Season lightly with salt, and then stir in the cumin and white chili powder as the vegetables are cooking.
In a pot, bring the bouillon cubes and water to a boil, whisking to make sure the bouillon is dissolved. Place the TVP in a bowl, add 1 cup (235 ml) of the boiling broth, and cover for 5 minutes, or until fluffy.
Once the veggies are soft, add the remaining 5 cups (1.2 L) broth and bring to a simmer over low heat.
Purée 1 can of Great Northern beans in a food processor until smooth. Stir the puréed beans into the veggies and broth until well incorporated. Stir in the remaining 2 cans of beans, lime juice, and cornstarch mixture. Cook for an additional 10 minutes over medium-high heat until thickened, stirring occasionally.
Crush the saffron threads with the back of a spoon and add to the chili. Let cook an additional minute or so before serving.
