Vegetable & Tortellini Soup

We’ve been snowed in for three days. Ugh! It’s finally starting to warm up and slowly melt away. I was able to make a very quick run to the grocery store Friday just as it was starting to snow. I didn’t have a list and I wanted to get home as soon as possible. I pretty much ran through the grocery store, throwing whatever looked good in my cart. I typically plan my meals out in advance but did not have time. I had to get creative with meals but sometimes the best meals are served when this happens. This yummy soup is the result of needing to get creative with what I had on hand. It’s delicious, filling and loaded with goodness. Enjoy!
I’ve been on a real soup kick lately. When the snowpocalipse started Friday I knew some soups and comfort food were in our near future. This soup I came up fairly quickly as I wanted something filling and nutritious. Let’s get down to business.Vegetable & Tortellini Soup     www.ourfulltable.com

Start by chopping your celery and carrots into similar size pieces. Chop your onions and garlic. Don’t forget the kale and parsley too!Vegetable & Tortellini Soup  www.ourfulltable.com

In a large pot over medium-high heat sauté the mirepoix(celery, onion & carrot) & garlic in 1 tbsp olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

For my broth today I’m using the fabulous better than bouillon. I love it. I have most of the flavors. It’s the best! Trust me on this one. For six cups of water I use about 2 tbsps. I like to add the mixture to the water after its already in the pan. So add your water than your chicken bouillon paste. I also like to add a little onion & garlic powder for extra flavor. Totally optional but I highly recommend it. Vegetable & Tortellini Soup | www.ourfulltable.comVegetable & Tortellini Soup |   www.ourfulltable.comVegetable & Tortellini Soup  |  www.ourfulltable.comNext bring your liquid up to a boil. Add your tortellini & kale. Vegetable & Tortellini Soup  | www.ourfulltable.com
 Bring the liquid to a boil again after you add the pasta & kale. Reduce to simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes or until the tortellini is cooked through. Garnish with parsley and serve. I season with salt & pepper to taste after the addition of each of the ingredients. Make sure you taste the finally product before you serve. DSC_0616 Vegetable & Tortellini Soup | www.ourfulltable.com
