Soup's On: Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

I can't tell if I'm a runner with a food problem or a foodie with a running problem. At least they work together. Anyway...

This is vegan and gluten free.

With cheese and sour cream, it's vegetarian and gluten free.

This recipe is adapted from a recipe with the same name at It's a vegetarian recipe, and normally I replace the chicken substitute with chicken. This time, however, used soy curls instead. My friend Kim and her husband own a company called Fake Meats. They graciously gave me the soy curls to try in the recipe. The whole family ate the soup, and there were no leftovers. I consider that a success. We garnished ours with cheese and sour cream. I totally forgot about the cilantro. It made it out of the fridge but not to the soup. Oops.

Yum! Yum!
