|Tortilla Soup from The COmplete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions (page 213)|
Today's recipe comes from a little old book known as The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions: Veganize It! Foolproof Methods for Transforming Any Dish into a Delicious New Vegan Favorite. I say little, because this tome actually is little. It's the size of your typical paperback novel, and fits easily into a purse or bag, so you can take it with you easily on shopping trips.
The idea behind this book was for Celine and I to give noobs the knowledge to go forth and veganize any of their old favorite recipes. And it did! Over the years, I have heard from and met many people who said this book has been absolutely invaluable in their transition to veganism. That makes me so very happy. (So happy, that Celine and I have already been working on The Complete Guide to (Even More) Vegan Food Substitutions, that is full of even more fun and innovative recipes and techniques for turning your favorite pregan recipes into cruelty-free dishes.) What a lot of people don't realize, is that there are a ton of recipes in the book, too. Lots of foods you might recognize from your pregan days, made vegan using all plant-based ingredients. This tortilla soup is one of those recipes.
