Tortellini Soup w/ Vegan Sausage (and homemade croutons!)

To kick off 2022, the weather gods decided to give Colorado a huge snow storm. This made going out to celebrate the new year less enticing, and it made staying in and cooking a comfort meal that much more exciting. As someone who loves soup, I figured a hot bowl of tortellini soup would hit the spot while I watched the snow fall. However, I have never had a vegan version of tortellini soup, so I figured I would write my own recipe and hope for the best!

Thankfully, I had beginners luck with this recipe. Not only was I able to find my favorite brand(s) of vegan sausage and tortellini at Whole Foods, this recipe also knocked my socks off (and my boyfriends, too!) Plus, we were able to make it in one pot in less than half an hour, so it was quick, simple, and still super comforting. If you need a new heart-warming soup recipe to add to your repertoire, this can be your new go to.
