Crock Pot Vegan Creamy Tortilla Soup

Crock Pot Vegan Creamy Tortilla Soup- a hearty and delicious plant-based take on Tortilla Soup that takes minutes to prep!

Crock Pot Vegan Creamy Tortilla Soup

If you’ve never tried tortilla soup, you’re in for a treat! It contains many of the same ingredients as chili (black beans, corn, diced tomatoes) but this version features coconut milk to give it an amazing, creamy texture. The addition of coconut milk really separates this from traditional tortilla soup. I also added red lentils to kick the protein up a notch. Baked, sliced corn tortillas add just the right amount of crisp.

I’m not a fan of anything spicy, but if you are, you can add 1 jalapeño and/or ½ teaspoon chili powder to the recipe.

Ingredients needed:

Can of black beans

Can of coconut milk ( you can use either full-fat or low-fat. Full-fat will make the soup even more creamy and delicious!)

Can of corn kernels

Can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes (if you can’t find fire-roasted, you can use regular diced tomatoes. The fire-roasted have a wonderful flavor though)

Dry red lentils (don’t substitute green or brown- they cook differently and have a different flavor)

Yellow onion

Low-sodium vegetable stock

Garlic

Cumin, salt, pepper and chili powder (optional)

Add the black beans (rinsed and drained), coconut milk, red lentils, chopped yellow onion, can of corn (drained), fire-roasted tomatoes, vegetable stock, minced garlic, and spices to the slow cooker. Cook on low heat for 4-6 hours.

To make the tortillas:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice the corn tortillas into narrow strips and place on the sheet. Bake for 3 minutes then turn them over. Bake for an additional 3 minutes.

Sprinkle the baked tortilla chips on top of the soup and garnish with a chopped red onion, a lime wedge and cilantro.
