Default Very Veggie White Chili

I had a bunch of cooked white (actually they were canary, but close enough) beans and I wanted a vegetarian white chili recipe. I ended up culling through dozens of recipes, added more veggies than any I found and pieced together the recipe below. It was delicious! Even my husband agreed, which is a huge surprise.... It is sweet from the long-cooked cauliflower and cabbage and turns creamy from the long-cooked quinoa. I didn't saute any veggies so it was *easy*.

Very Veggie White Chili

10 1-cup servings
  • 6 cups vegetable broth, preferably a light-colored one or your soup will be dark - I used water + fake chicken stock powder
  • 1/2 block (7 ounces) tofu, crumbled - I froze mine first for different texture
  • 1/2 cup yellow or white onions, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced - I only used the white end of the stalks
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower, broken into tiny florets
  • 1 1/2 cups green cabbage, shredded thinly - I used the white parts
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cups white beans, cooked - I cooked them with garlic & onion & bay leaf
Seasonings to taste:
  • White pepper
  • Salt
  • Cayenne pepper, a tiny pinch or more if you like spicy
  • Garlic and/or onion powder if your stock doesn’t carry enough punch
  • Cheese, grated, something white like Monterey Jack or white cheddar
  • Sour cream
Dump everything in the crockpot/slow cooker except the beans. (Probably you could use soaked beans and put them in at the same time as everything else, but my beans were already cooked so I added them at the end). Mine cooked about 4-5 hours on high.

Then add the beans and heat them through for about half an hour.

Serve garnished with a dollop of fat free sour cream and/or lowfat cheese (I used white cheddar), if desired.
