This cozy bowl of spinach tortellini soup is the perfect 30 minute dinner! It’s packed with so much flavor, tons of vegetables, and always hits the spot when you’re craving comfort food.
I love serving it with a big side salad, but its truly delicious on its own!
I’ve made two big pots of this soup in the last few weeks, and it’s been such a good meal prep to have on hand for busy afternoons! The soup is tomato based, and filled with chunks of carrots for added veggies and texture.
It’s loaded with onions, carrots, spinach, and crushed tomatoes. It’s such a hearty, nourishing soup to enjoy with your favorite pasta.
I love using a dairy-free tortellini for this recipe, but any variety would work well. If you need a substitute, or can’t find a variety that suits your diet, you can swap any pasta of your choice, or even add white kidney beans instead!
How to make vegan spinach tortellini soup
- Cook the carrots & onions. Start by sauteeing the chopped vegetables until they begin to soften. Add in the spices and garlic, and let them absorb the flavors before adding in the liquid
- Prep the soup base. Once your veggies begin to soften, prepare your base for the soup by adding in the crushed tomatoes and vegetable broth. Letting it simmer over a low flame allows all of the flavors to really set in
- Stir in the spinach. I like to let the spinach simmer in the soup for 10 minutes before adding in the tortellini
- Cook your tortellini. The tortellini needs about 7-8 minutes, so I suggest adding it in right before you’re ready to serve.
Storing leftover soup
When reheating leftovers, you can warm over a low flame or in the microwave. I suggest adding an additional cup of water or vegetable broth when reheating.
If you’re preparing this soup for 1-2 people and plan to reheat leftovers, you can cook half of the tortellini separately, and then add it to your soup once you’re ready to serve. This will prevent the tortellini from getting too soggy, and will leave more liquid in your soup!
This soup is truly so easy to make, and definitely a staple during the colder nights. Top it off with freshly ground pepper and your favorite grated cheese for more deliciousness!
