I'm going to try something new here. Every Wednesday I want to post a recipe that has gone over really well at my house. So today is the first day of What's Cookin' Good Lookin' Wednesdays (WCGLW for short).
Lets start with a little background info, shall we? Before the bf and I decided to go vegetarian, I had a lot of reservations. Being a picky eater, I was very afraid that I would starve to death if I went vegetarian. I could count the number of vegetables I liked on my fingers and fruits weren't that much better.
However, I had recently turned 21 (woo hoo! par-tay! Just kidding I am a total homebody and don't like the taste of alcohol...with the exception of mojitos) and decided it was time for me to be a big kid about food. So we decided to take the plunge and just give it a go. If it didn't work, well hey we tried right?
So I went searching in every corner of the internet for vegetarian recipes trying to find out what we were going to eat. To my dismay, the majority of what I found was not just a little outside my comfort zone, but all the way in Timbuktu. So I want to use WCGLW to share recipes that even I didn't turn my nose up to.
So without further ado I give you..... Tortellini Soup!
I found the recipe on theveggietable.com and it goes a little something like this... (fresh prince of belaire anyone? lurv it)
Yield: 2- 4 (more like 2 at my house)
Time: 15 min (if that)
1. Heat butter or oil in the bottom of a large saucepan and add minced garlic. Cook until browned.
2. Add veg. stock and tomatoes and bring to a boil
3. Add tortellini and cook until done (if using frozen ,they are done when they float)
4. Add spinach and basil and cook for a few more minutes
5. Serve with parm cheese on top and enjoy!
I didn't think ahead and take a picture of one of my batches but the next time I make it I will update with pictures!
