Vegan Tortellini Soup

Here’s how you can make a delicious and easy vegan tortellini soup perfect for when you crave a hearty, wholesome soup recipe! Give it a try! 

Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road was the one who inspired me to cook this delicious vegan tortellini soup. I saw her tortellini soup with Italian sausage recipe on Pinterest and immediately wanted to give it a try! I decided to make it vegan with just a couple of easy and affordable substitutes and the result was comfort food at its finest!

In case you are not familiar with the different kinds of Italian pasta, tortellini is a ring-shaped pasta that almost looks like a navel. This type of pasta is stuffed with meat, cheese or veggies and mushrooms for the vegan versions. You can find tortellini either, refrigerated, frozen or even dry. They also differ in size, from small to large.

The Essential Italian Cookbook for Vegans

I recommend this cookbook!

The original tortellini soup recipe contains real sausage which I replaced with smoked tofu, crumbled and mixed with some spices. My vegan tortellini soup is more on the chunky side rather than having a creamy texture, but if you want to make it a creamy soup, simply blend the ingredients (except vegan tofu sausage and tortellini, of course!).

It’s so flavorful and easy to make! I used store-bought vegan mushroom-filled tortellini, but you can use any kind of tortellini you want. You can even make this with tiny ravioli or noodles!

I served this vegan tortellini soup with lots of fresh chopped herbs on top. I didn’t have any fresh basil, but it would have been the perfect topping for this. So feel free to add any herbs you want, but basil is a match made in Heaven for this soup! 🙂

DELICIOUS. I usually can't find smoked tofu but I lucked out today in a market two towns away. :) Is there a substitute I can use when I can't find it, maybe tofu and some liquid smoke? For sure we'll be having this again. Thanks for a yummy recipe.

You can use simple tofu as well and add either liquid smoke or smoked paprika for flavor. You're welcome, glad you like it!
