spicy tortilla soup

a while ago, i decided that it would be fun/beneficial to try being vegan for a month. i needed to wait until the holidays were over so that i didn't have to forego such treats as greek salads from greek isle, delicious sandwiches from wildflower cafe, and p's mom's homemade white cheddar mac & cheese. well, we just got back last night and i had my first vegan meal: spicy tortilla soup. i took it pretty much directly from this recipe, except my grocery store did not have vegetable broth so i had to use a broth/water mix. i also omitted the toppings, but i can totally imagine the soup being a little better with them.

here are some pictures:

the first time i've ever had the opportunity to use my immersion blender!

all done!

I took a spoonful last night and it was nice. I really liked the texture.

I think I need to do a post on cooking-toys.

I was always so proud that I had a food processor. TRUMPED BY THE IMMERSION BLENDER.
