Have you ever made a soup so good and hearty that you could eat it every day? This is how I felt when this creation entered my kitchen! Move over vegan tortilla soup, there’s a new guy in town. Both healthy and flavorful, this tequila lime soup will be your new Mexican favorite!
When I got the email from Le Creuset about working together, I was thrilled. I LOVE LOVE their products. They are so well made, work fantastic, and the brand itself is solid in customer service. I have had a dutch oven on my radar for quite some time, so when I got the opportunity to work with one for this job, it was a no brainer. Not only does it look amazing in my kitchen, I am OBSESSED with it. Seriously, I use it multiple times a week! (pssst, check out the surprise before the recipe!)
Preparing your food in a dutch oven just takes it to a whole new level. The flavors are amazing when you let them develop over time, especially in this vegan chickpea soup. Enter Simply Organic spices. Has anyone ever done a side by side comparison with an average spice brand and Simply Organic? I have. I used to buy spices from another brand because of the price point. I never thought about there being a difference. Then one day they were out of my spice, so I bought that spice from another grocery store, which carries mostly the Simply Organic brand. Fast forward to the next day when I used it. Just the aroma itself caught me off guard. It was so much more pungent! Simply Organic is hands down one of the best. Pair them with the Le Creuset brand cookware and we’re talking food heaven.
So back to my vegan chickpea soup. The base itself is quite simplistic actually. The key is dried chickpeas (just soak for at least 4 hours, or up to overnight), the Simply Organic spices and the dutch oven where flavors marinate and become incredible. Of course you can make this in a regular soup pot, but the flavors won’t be as deep and intense. Once the simple soup base is done, load it with fresh ingredients like avocado, tomato and cilantro and DIG IN. Try to take a breath from time to time.
Why you need tequila lime soup in your life:
- a fun twist to the average vegan tortilla soup
- the flavors are unique and so tasty, not your average vegan chickpea soup
- chock full of healthy ingredients so it’s a one pot meal
- dinner for the entire family, puree it for the littles
- perfect cozy meal
