Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 6 cups


  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ lb. mushrooms (any kind), finely chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper (any color), chopped
  • 2 jalapeños, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 Tbs. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 1 15 oz. can no-salt-added cannellini beans, undrained
  • 1 15 oz. can no-salt-added red kidney beans, undrained
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt


  1. In a large heavy pot, heat the oil over medium heat until shimmering. Sauté the mushrooms until they start to brown, 7–10 minutes.
  2. Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeños, and garlic and sauté until they start to soften, 3–5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and spices, then continue stirring until fragrant, 1–2 minutes.
  3. Add the corn and the beans with their liquid. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the flavors meld, 15–20 minutes. Season with the salt.
