White Bean Stew With Chipotle Links Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
1 pound navy beans
1 cup Steamed Seitan Chipotle Links
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ cup diced onion
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
2 15-ounce cans fire-roasted tomatoes
2 cobs of corn, kernels cut from the cob
1 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco (omit if you don’t like spicy; you can put it on the table instead)
1The Night Before Cooking
2Put the beans in a large pot and cover with water. Swish your hand around in the water and pick out any beans that float or don’t look good. Drain the beans. Put the beans back into the large pot. Cover with water by about 4 inches above the beans. Let soak on the counter overnight.
3The Next Day
4Drain the beans and cover with 2 to 3 inches of fresh water. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium low and simmer, partially covered, for about 1½ to 2 hours. Stir a couple of times during cooking time but make sure the temperature stays at a good simmer and the beans are covered with water. The beans are finished when you can squish one with your fingers.
5When the beans are almost done, brown the seitan links on all sides. Remove from the pan and cut into about ¾-inch pieces.
6Add the oil to a large skillet and heat to medium low. Add the chopped onion and carrots and sauté for 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
7Drain the beans and return to the large pot. Add the tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes. It will be soupy. Add the corn, broth, basil, and hot sauce and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer another 10 minutes.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
