While we haven't officially started the vegan challenge, I have been trying to make better choices with my eating. I haven't been shopping or made up a meal plan yet, so I used what I had already in the house for tonight's dinner.
I used the VitaMix Tortilla Soup recipe on their site as a guide.
If you have the VitaMix, it will heat it up in the blender. I added mine to a pan on the stove to make it a little warmer. You can also omit the tortilla chips blended in to make it healthier, I like the flavor & body they give it. I also top mine with them when I eat it-I like the crunch. Their recipe has other veggies in it which I would add if I had them on hand. I would think you can add pretty much anything as long as it doesn't have a strong flavor.
(makes about 10 cups)
Add all ingredients to the blender & blend for 6-7 minutes on high. Stir in beans & corn after blending. Enjoy!
