Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Rating: 4.63 stars
People have offered me their firstborn children for this recipe; it is simple, easy to make, and delicious. It's also vegan if you don't add the cheese at the end. If you prefer a more spicy soup, add a dash or two of hot sauce before serving.

Quick, tasty, and super easy! A great soup for a quick lunch or add a green salad and some corn bread and you have dinner. Serve with sour cream, shredded Cheddar, and sliced green onions.

Vermicelli Soup

Rating: 3.73 stars
This soup is called "fideo" or "sopa seca" -- dry soup -- and is eaten all over Mexico. It is inexpensive and easy to make. This can be comforting when sick but, it is a GREAT side dish with any kind of meat, poultry, fish. To make it more soupy you can add vegetable broth to taste.

Summer Vegetarian Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars
Throw summer's fresh vegetables into a pot and stew them up for an antioxidant-packed, Southwestern-flavored treat. Black beans also have fiber, folic acid and cholesterol-lowering activity.

Red Chile Pozole

Pozole is a traditional Mexican stew typically made with pork or chicken, but this vegetarian version calls for a Plant-based Protein Starter from Pure Farmland® instead. You can serve this hearty dish, topped with cilantro, avocado, and radishes, for lunch or dinner.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup with Avocado

Rating: 4.71 stars
One thing I've missed in the years of my being vegetarian is the delicious tortilla soup a local Mexican restaurant makes. I've finally mastered my vegetarian version, that can easily be vegan if the cheese isn't added at the end. My omnivore boyfriend thinks it's divine! Black beans can be added for extra protein.

A black bean puree is mixed with chunky sweet potatoes and kissed with some lime at the end. A mixture of Mexican flavors that will have you coming back for more.
