By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 0 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 35 mins
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp red chilies, de-seeded and chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 large onion, diced
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
3 1/2 oz tinned jalapenos, drained
2 1/2 cups cannellini beans
2 tbsp soy sauce
3 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
3 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp cornstarch
3 cups spinach
1Start by heating the olive oil in a large saucepan or wide frying pan over a medium-high heat, then add the chilli peppers, garlic, and onion. Cook for 5 minutes, until softened and fragrant.
2Add the celery, peppers, carrots, cumin, paprika and garlic powder. Continue cooking for a further 4-5 minutes, until the vegetables soften.
3Add the jalapeno peppers, cannellini beans, soy sauce, potatoes, vegetable broth and nutritional yeast. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for around 15 minutes, until the potatoes are fork tender. Add more vegetable broth if it starts to look too dry.
4Carefully pour 1/2 of the chili into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, then return back to the pan together with salt and cornstarch, and simmer for a further 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
5At the end, stir in the spinach and serve once the spinach wilts.

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.
