1 tsp Cayenne pepper (for spice blend)
1 tbsp Garlic powder (for spice blend)
1 tbsp Onion powder (for spice blend)
1 tbsp Oregano, dried (for spice blend)
2 tbsp Paprika (for spice blend)
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt (for spice blend)
2 tsp, ground Thyme, dried (for spice blend)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 onion(s) Sweet onion (diced)
3 medium Carrots (peeled, chopped)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (chopped)
1 1/2 cup Sweet potato (chopped)
2 medium stalk(s) Celery (chopped)
2 can(s) (16 oz) Diced tomatoes, canned
5 cup Vegetable stock/broth
1 dash Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 can (15oz) Chickpeas, canned, drained (drained, rinsed)
3 cup Baby spinach (or kale)


  1. Place cashews in a bowl and add enough water to cover. Soak the cashews overnight, or for 8 hours. For a quicker alternative, soak the cashews in boiled water for 30 to 60 minutes. Drain and rinse the cashews.
  2. In a blender, combine the prepared cashews with 1 cup of vegetable broth and blend on high until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the 10-spice blend by combining basil, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, paprika, sea salt, and thyme. You should have 1/2 cup of the mixture. Set aside.
  4. In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Season with sea salt.
  5. Add the carrots, bell pepper, sweet potato, celery, and diced tomatoes with their juices.
  6. Add the remaining vegetable broth and 1-2 Tbsp of the 10-spice blend. Stir well to combine. 
  7. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Season with salt and black pepper.

    Simmer uncovered, for at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender. 
  8. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, stir in the cashew cream, spinach (or kale), and drained beans. Add more 10-spice mix, to taste.
