Tortilla Lime Soup (Vegan)

Tortilla Lime Soup (Vegan)

Ready in 45 minutes

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.

Are you making this? 
1 onion; chopped
2 sticks celery; chopped
2-3 cloves garlic; crushed and chopped
2 plum tomatoes; chopped
1 cup fresh cilantro; chopped
2 cups refried beans
2 cups water
1/2 tsp cumin; ground
3-4 leaves bay leaves; ground
1/4 tsp black pepper; ground
1/4 tsp salt
1-2 juice limes; squeezed
2 baked tortillas or tostadas; crumbled

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



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.

Crumble baked tortiallas or tostadas into the soup just before serving.
