Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If there is one thing I can’t get enough of, it’s soups! From a distance soups sound like a pain, but they are one of the easiest things to throw tougher and there is so much room for creativity. Bonus, you they are affordable, can easily be made in bulk, and you can can pack on the veggies!

 

One soup I had not had in years was tortellini. Typically all store bought pasta is made with dairy, but you can find some vegan tortellini now at Whole Foods. That being said, I was curious to explore this staple soup and create an effortless recipe for you. Just like that, the creamy vegan Tortellini Soup was born!

 

Typically this soup has more of a watery base, but I love a creamy soup! When people think creamy they think heavy cream, but you can absolutely make a creamy dreamy soup sans dairy using cashews! Think you need a boat load of cashews which are pricey? Nope, just 1/2 cup!

 

 

 

 


 

What’s great about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs kale, you can easily make it in bulk, it has a rich creamy texture, packs protein making it more filling, and it’s perfect for fall!
