  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 15-ounce cans cannellini beans drained and rinsed (or navy or white northern beans)
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes (or about 2 cups fresh diced tomatoes)

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced

  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook until the edges begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and bell pepper and cook for about 5 more minutes, until the vegetables have softened.
