Lemon Spinach Tortellini Soup
Soup season is in full force and I can't stop making it! This lemony, herby, brothy soup is a great, quick and comforting dish to put together and the perfect thing to offset all the holiday indulgence! I hope you enjoy!
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 ribs celery
3 long carrots
2 quarts vegetable broth or chicken broth
10 oz spinach or cheese tortellini ( I use Trader Joe’s Spinach Tortellini)
3 heaping handfuls of fresh spinach
2-3 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped
Juice of two lemons
1. In a Dutch oven or large pot, heat olive oil over medium low heat.
2. Sauté celery, carrots and garlic for 3-4 minutes.
3. Add the broth and bring to boil. Once boiling add the tortellini and lower the heat to a simmer. Cook for 4-6 minutes or until tortellini is al dente.
4. Off heat, add the spinach and stir until the spinach is wilted. Add the dill and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
