Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring 1 cup of the water to a boil in a small saucepan.
  2. Add the bulgur and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed.
  3. Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the onion and sauté over medium heat until translucent.
  4. Add the garlic and bell pepper and continue to sauté, stirring frequently, until all are golden.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients, except the garnishes, plus the cooked bulgur and the remaining 3 cups water.
  6. Bring to a rapid simmer, then lower the heat. Cover and simmer gently for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  7. Fill a bowl about 2/3 full with soup. Top with grated vegan cheese, shredded lettuce, and diced tomatoes. Line the perimeter of each bowl with several tortilla chips, points facing upward, for a star-shaped effect.
