Ingredients

1 cup toasted walnuts
1/2 cup olive oil
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
1 small red Holland chile, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
1/2 small leek, finely chopped
2 tsp. coriander seeds
1 tsp. hot paprika
1 lb. dried dark red kidney beans, soaked overnight and drained
12 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped dill
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Country bread, for serving

Instructions

Place walnuts and half the oil in a food processor; puree until very smooth, about 2 minutes, and set aside. Heat remaining oil in a 6-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic, carrots, onions, chiles, and leeks; cook, stirring until golden, about 10 minutes. Add coriander and paprika; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add beans and stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cook, slightly covered, until beans are very tender, 2-2 1/2 hours. Using a ladle, transfer half the beans to a blender; puree until smooth and return to pot. Stir in walnut puree, cilantro, dill, parsley, vinegar, salt, and pepper; serve with bread on the side.
