This week, I am joining for the very first time, some other soup-obsessed bloggers to bring you soups inspired by Mexico! Who knew? How many soups can there be? Well, turns out there are quite a few and my addition to the wonderful list, is this Tomato, Lime, Tortilla Soup, that is a vegetarian broth, so my house could enjoy it all this Lenten week!
I was inspired by a recipe in my old “Sundays at Moosewood(affil. link)” cookbook that has great vegetarian dishes represented from all around the world.
Her version of this soup is called “Sopa de Lima” and uses fresh tomatoes and whole chilis and whole cumin seeds. I made mine more weeknight-friendly with a can of San Marzano tomatoes, since it’s winter here in New England, and ground cumin and chili powder. I added some lime zest too, since my limes weren’t giving this the punch it needed. And then, I added white corn, because I like it, and it added a bit more ‘bite’ to the meal.
Can I just tell you how good my house smelled while I was making this?! Lime is such a great, fresh scent- love it in this soup as it makes it different from anything I’ve ever had before.
If you are trying to avoid carbs, just leave out the tortilla chips and call it, “Tomato-Lime-Corn Soup.” It is still delicious! Here’s the simple and light recipe:
I hope you all check out these great recipes and feel free to add a recipe of your own if you have one! Thanks to Karen at Karen’t Kitchen Stories blog for hosting!
