Vegetarian Tortilla Soup (Vegan)

May 4, 2011

Another day, another tex-mex themed meal. This is a slightly spicy soup, with all the veggies you want and need. This was simple enough to make, and had lots of flavor. I slightly burned the tortilla strips, so be sure you watch yours!

Have a great Cinqo de Mayo tomorrow. Enjoy!

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 large can of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tb tomato paste
  • 1 box of veggie broth
  • 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed well
  • 1 can of corn, rinsed and drained (or fresh corn if it is in season)
  • 1 can of chopped green chiles
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1 avocado, de-seeded and chopped

1. Pre-heat the oven to 375

2. In a stockpot, saute your onions, garlic, and zucchini in oil. Add the rest of the ingredient (except for tortillas and avocado). Let simmer for 30 minutes

3. Meanwhile, spray a baking pan with oil. Lay your tortillas on top, slice them into strips,  spray them with oil, and let bake for 5-10 minutes. Watch them so they don’t burn.

4. Pour your soup in a bowl, then garnish with tortilla chips and avocado

    We made this one over the weekend with my sister Angie–she spotted it on your blog and kept mentioning it until we bought the rest of the ingredients. I’m not a fan of plain old tomato soup because there’s nothing to bite into, like a warm bowl of V8. This tortilla soup has substance and body and flavor up the ying-yang. Even Robb liked it. Of course he picked out the zucchini. And I managed to pull off a Meatless Saturday Night by not making a big deal about the absence of meat. 🙂
