Delicious! We enjoyed this so much! I made as directed making very few changes. I added fresh baby leaf spinach and also used kidney beans instead of peas. I used spinach filled ravioli in place of the tortellini which made a wonderful change. Very quick, very simple to throw together with all ingredient on hand for a great Saturday night meal! Thank you so much, Annaica, for a great new meatless soup recipe I am sure to use again, and again!

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 12 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chopped tomatoes

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a pan. Fry the carrots and onion for 5 mins until starting to soften. Add the stock and tomatoes, then simmer for 10 minutes Add the peas or beans with 5 mins to go.
