Tasty Tuesday: Chipotle Tortilla Soup

Tasty Tuesday… because any day can be a meatless day!

It has been a bit rainy around here lately. And I know summer isn’t always the most ideal time for soup, but for rainy days in, it is perfect. I mean an excuse to snuggle up in bed and watch some Netflix, yes please.

This recipe was actually adapted from Hot for Food’s Tortilla Soup Recipe. Thank you Lauren for doing so much magic in the kitchen. You rock.

  2. Chop the tofu up into cubes, then stir it in with the minced garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Now add the crush tomatoes and diced tomatoes. Either fresh or canned tomatoes work perfectly. Stir it all together and then add the vegetable stock.19511911_10156454917718508_149851271_n19511956_10156454917703508_1462111610_n
  4. Bring the soup to a simmer, and then add coconut sugar (helps with the acidity). Then add the black beans, corn, lime zest and juice, salt and pepper.19553468_10156454917673508_312953420_n
