One Pot Tortilla Soup


A hearty Central American soup with lots of intense flavours and textures. This is one of my favourite soup recipes to have in restaurants and I have finally cracked it! It is very smoky and with tons of flavours that will keep you asking for more. I incorporated   shredded jack fruit to keep it plant based and it turned out better than I expected it! So lets get to it…

Cooking Time: 45 min


Veggie Broth

  • 2 chopped Carrot with skin

  • 2 minced garlic clove2 celery stalks

  • 1 chopped onion

  • 1/2 Cup fresh basil leaves

  • 6 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 tsp dry thyme

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp salt & pepper to taste

  • Handful of parsley

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1 tbsp chipotle paste

  • 10 cups of water

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • Avocado

  • Tortilla chips

  • 1 can jackfruit drained, rinse and shredded and parsley.


Instructions:

  1. Heat a large pot add olive oil, celery, onion garlic and carrots and saute for 5 min. Add water, paprika, cumin, thyme, salt and pepper mix and bring to boil. 

  2. Once boiled lower heat to simmer and add parsley, basil , tomato and chipotle paste and mix well. cover and simmer for 35-45 min.

  3. Once it cooked for 35-45 min adjust salt and pepper or add more chipotle paste if you need an extra quick and smokiness. Once you like the flavours remove from heat and use a strainer to remove veggie pieces from the stock.

  4. In the mean time the veggie stock is cooking prepare your jackfruit.

  5. Add 1/2 chopped onion, jack fruit and 1 tbsp of olive oil to a frying pan and cook for 5 min.

  6. Add cooked jack fruit and onion to your stained veggie stock and cook for 10 min in low heat

*Note: To make home made tortilla chips cut corn tortillas in bite size pieces, drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and toss. Heat oven at 380 F (190C) and cook and flipping occasionally for 15 min or until tortillas are light brown. Let them cool for 5 min after removing from the oven. They will become crunchy after cooling down.
