Tomato Tortellini Soup

Pin It

It's been a while since I've posted a soup recipe - but don't think we haven't been enjoying warm, comforting meals. I have a lot of soup recipes lined up to share with you. They are all winners, trust me.


This recipe for Tomato Tortellini Soup caught my eye as I was searching for meals that included bok choy. Y'all, the organic farm that we have our CSA box through must be lovers of bok choy. We seriously get it every.single.week. I kid you not. I made a tofu stir-fry a couple weeks ago that used up some bok choy, but I wanted to branch out from stir-fries. Bok choy is so much more than that! 


The original recipe called for sun-dried tomatoes. Well, being the frugal person that I am, I just used canned, diced tomatoes. It was perfect. That's the great thing about cooking in your own kitchen - you can swap out ingredients to your liking (or what you have on-hand!).
