Soups are on our menu every second this season . It’s raining forever here and nothing can be more comforting than a bowl of piping hot soup.
I had few rotis left from lunch , so used it up for a quick filling dinner. I love using tortilla/ rotis many ways and today I am glad to share one of the delicious way I do it- in a soup.
It’s suitable for a baby as well as an adult. In short this soup is perfect for everyone.
And to make it more interesting , i made some spicy cashew maple drizzle and finished it off with some spring onions and croutons which is completely optional. I love soups and try to make it interesting every time trying new combinations and let me tell you when you try this vegan homestyle tortilla soup with spicy cashew maple drizzle will surely be a routine on your dinner table too.
What is this soup made of-
Simple ingredients and clean flavors packed with nutrition .
So whats the deal with the drizzle-
Cashew and maple syrup drizzle spiced with sriracha hot sauce .
Oh boy, you need to try it – its bold , it has a kick and balanced flavors . It leaves you wanting for more soup- slurp ,slurp!!
Truly speaking maple syrup wasn’t the part of the plan. It was just going to be siracha and cashews , but it turned a bit hot , so had to add some sweetness, hence maple syrup. And the taste was so perfect .
