  • 4 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Red Onion sliced
  • 5 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup Red Chili Paste
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • cups Vegetable Broth
  • 28 ounces Cannelini Beans
  • 2 Carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Turmeric
  • cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley


  • In a Dutch Oven or Stock Pot, melt 3 tablespoons of the Butter. Add the Onions and Garlic, season with salt and cover over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions become transparent, about 8 to 9 minutes.
  • Add the Red Chili Paste and Tomato Paste and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the Cumin and Paprika, then add 1 3/4 cup of the Vegetable Broth and bring to a simmer, scraping down the sides of the pot.
  • Add the Beans, Carrots, Thyme, Lemon Juice and the remaining 1 3/4 cup of Vegetable Broth to the pot. Season with a bit more salt and cover. Reduce heat to a medium simmer for about 30 minutes.
  • In a small skillet melt the remaining 1 tablespoons of Butter. Add in the Turmeric and cook on a medium-low setting, stirring constantly, until the spice dissolves. Pour the contents into a small mixing bowl and let cool. Whisk in the Yogurt and season with a pinch of salt.
  • Before serving add in the Chopped Parsley. Ladle into bowls and top with the Turmeric Yogurt.


You can find the Roasted Red Chili Paste at most grocery stores in the Asian section of the store.
