This recipe for Quick & Hearty Tortellini Vegetable Soup is filling meal that’s packed with flavor and healthy ingredients. It’s a tasty way to get your kids to eat their vegetables!
I make this soup a lot through the cooler months. If you cut the vegetables quite small, it only takes about 30 minutes to cook.
I often throw the vegetables the food processor and chop them all together (small, but not finely chopped). When I do it that way, it only takes about 20 minutes from pot to plate, but you’ll have to play with it and test the vegetables before serving.
This is such warming comfort food and my son just loves it! He’d never guess it was packed with vegetables!
To make it, you simply saute the vegetables in some olive oil until slightly soft. Then add the garlic and cook another minute.
then add the tomatoes, stock and some chopped parsley and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes (depending on how small you chop the vegetables).
Add the tortellini and cook how ever long it states on the package instructions.
Serve with grated cheese.
