Tortilla Lime Soup (Vegan)
This Mexican-Central American soup gets zest from fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro. I make this with refried beans or rice and beans, since both use a common onion celery base, and the soup uses a cup of refried beans. I avoid packaged stock, which usually has the wrong base flavors and spices. Instead, I use my own vegetable base and add ground whole spices.

Tortilla Lime Soup (Vegan) Preparation
In pan, brown onion, 5 min. Add celery, tomato, garlic and half the fresh cilantro and saute, 5 min. This makes a fresh and aromatic vegetable base.
Grind whole spices together and save. Add refried beans, ground spice mix and water, bring to boil, and reduce heat to simmer, 20 min.
To finish, mix in lime juice, other half of fresh cilantro, broken tortilla and serve.
The finish of fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro really make the taste.
