Preparation

Step 1

Puree the broth and beans in batches in a blender; set aside in a large bowl.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the carrots, onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp tender, about 5 minutes. Add the cumin and cook, stirring, until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the bean mixture, the lemon juice, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the carrots are completely tender, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the parsley.
