Vegetarian Tortilla Soup (with lentils)

Delicious and creamy, this Vegetarian Tortilla Soup is packed with bold flavors, made easily with common and easy to find ingredients, economical, and can be made in the slow cooker, Instant Pot, or on the stovetop!

I may not be a full-fledged vegetarian, but I’ve been enjoying trying out some vegetarian options lately. They’re super tasty, and easier on the wallet!

If you like chicken tortilla soup, you should give this vegetarian lentil version a chance. The other flavors are bold and prominent, so you won’t feel like you’re eating a big bowl of lentils.

It’s actually a great gateway into trying meatless meals, since it’s still really hearty and filling!

As written, it’s a slow cooker meal, but I’ve also included Instant Pot and stovetop directions for your convenience, so you’re bound to find an option that fits your schedule.
