Souptember Collab - Pumpkin Chili
A big THANK YOU to Joan for allowing me the opportunity to participate in this collaboration.
I used this recipe as my guide for this Pumpkin Chili. I saw it and had everything for it in my pantry, so I decided on this recipe.
1 to 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil **
1 onion, diced (about 1 cup)
2 carrots, diced (about 1 cup)
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Pinch of red pepper flakes
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth
2 (15-ounce) cans fire roasted diced tomatoes, with their juices (regular petite diced tomatoes will work, too
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more to taste
Optional toppings: diced avocado, sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, *shredded cheddar cheese,* crushed corn tortilla chips, thinly sliced green onions
*Omit if making this dairy-free
**I sprayed my pan with the Avocado Spray rather than using oil
Make It Now:
In a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Once the oil is shimmery, add in the onions and carrots and saute until tender, about 4-5 minutes. Season lightly with salt and pepper as they cook. Add in the garlic, tomato paste, and red pepper flakes and saute another 30-60 seconds.
Stir in the broth, tomatoes, pumpkin puree, black beans, pinto beans, chickpeas, chili powder, cumin, oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper. (Freezing instructions begin here.)
Bring to a boil, stirring almost constantly, and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring regularly to avoid scorching the bottom.
Taste and adjust salt and pepper amounts. Serve topped with your favorite chili toppings.
Prepare From Frozen: Thaw completely. Follow Steps 3-4. If the soup was fully cooked, then all you need to do is thaw it and warm it up on the stovetop or in the microwave.
