This is a compensated post with V8, all opinions are our own.
V8 Vegetable Tortellini Soup (10)

We love vegetables and as an active family it’s important to us that we are eating plenty of vegetables with our meals. V8 is one of those things I know I can count on for a filling snack or a great accompany to my favorite whole wheat sandwich for lunch.

Part of living a healthy lifestyle is making sure that not only I get everything I need but that my family does too. Healthy snacks and even vegetable juice is a great way to refuel during the day. Especially for my children because they have a lot of after school activities. It’s important to me that they have healthy snacks and meals.


V8 wants to inspire families like ours to celebrate the vegetable and each week this month there’s another fun challenge to complete. You can even win prizes along the way! This week the challenge is to find some bounty at your local farmers or fresh produce market and snap a photo. Don’t forget to tag the photo with #V8VegOut.

To celebrate and to add even more vegetables to our favorite foods we wanted to share a savory fall soup recipe. This Tortellini and Vegetable Soup Recipe will be a new favorite for your entire family!

V8 Vegetable Tortellini Soup

Tortellini and Vegetable Soup Recipe


  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • 1 cup chopped okra
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • 5 cups V8 Vegetable Juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 TSP ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 cups tortellini

You will want to start by first preparing your vegetables. I also chopped the grape tomatoes in half.

I wanted to just saute the vegetables quickly before adding them to the soup. They become more flavorful and create a great base for the soup.

Add fresh basil and season and allow the asparagus to become slightly softened then add it to your soup pot.

I used the V8 as the vegetable soup base and it’s really flavorful and a great way to sneak in extra vegetables. Allow the soup to simmer on a low heat for an hour.

You will want to add the tortellini a half an hour before serving. Enough time for it to soak in all the vegetable flavor.

This soup is easily one of our new favorite fall meals. It’s packed full of flavor with the basil and there’s plenty of our favorite vegetables. We serve it with a warm crunchy french bread and our whole family enjoyed it.

During the last month we ate loads of broccoli, I counted and our family ate 10 cups of just broccoli! We added fresh tomatoes and vegetables to whatever meals we could and celebrated with a few f our favorite recipes along the way. Check out these two soups a savory chili and a tortellini vegetable soup. […]

  10. Shelley Zurek on October 16, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    Both the V8 and the tortellini were to Vegetable soup ingredients I never thought of. I guess that’s what they mean by “I could have had a V8”

  11. Sarah @ Must Have Mom on October 16, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Wow, this looks jam packed with nutrition! Great recipe!

  14. Paula on October 16, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    Using V8 for soup is genius! It has such great flavor already it is perfect for a soup.

  15. Jennifer on October 16, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    This recipe is great. I love V8 as a base. It’s already got a really great flavor to begin with, so it’s only natural that it would be great for a vegetable soup base.

  16. Maggie @ The Love Nerds on October 16, 2014 at 6:37 pm

    This looks incredible! I will definitely be making this on a cool night to stay warm.

  17. Debi@TheSpringMount6Pack on October 16, 2014 at 5:14 pm

  20. Deanna Ritz on October 16, 2014 at 11:41 am

  28. Danielle @ We Have It All on October 15, 2014 at 6:29 am

  29. Gabrielle Lynn O'Brien on October 14, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    I never would have thought to use V8 as a soup base! Huh, you learn something new every day!

  30. Danielle S. on October 14, 2014 at 8:12 pm

    I never really used V8 for cooking, so I’m curious to try this recipe. It sounds absolutely delicious, not to mention healthy for people who are trying to be fit.

  31. FamiGami on October 14, 2014 at 7:44 pm

    I used to drink V8 as a child all the time. I haven’t had it in a long time so I wonder if it’s changed since then.

  32. Franc Ramon on October 14, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    From all the spices I see in the recipe, this looks like a really tasty food. It also looks really healthy.

    • Dawn on October 16, 2014 at 1:42 pm

      I agree. It doesn’t get much healthier than vegetable soup with a V8 base. That’s got to be an entire weeks worth of veggies!

  33. Ann BAcciaglia on October 14, 2014 at 7:23 pm

    I love Tortellini in my soup! I usually add it to a chicken based soup but I am going to try this recipe as it looks so yummy.

  34. Theresa on October 14, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    This soup looks really yummy! Your photos look great.

    That looks SO tasty! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

  36. Andi on October 14, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    I used to make soup all the time with V8 in college – totally forgot about that! Makes everything super easy!

  37. Erica Brooks on October 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm

    That Tortellini looks so good. I love a good soup especially this time of year.

  38. rochkirstin on October 14, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    I really love dishes which are flavorful, colorful and healthy. My family favors vegetarian dishes and this soup recipe is a must-try!

  39. Nolie on October 14, 2014 at 6:29 pm

    OMG looks delicious and I love tortellini. Yet another way to eat it now.

  40. Shauna on October 14, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    Oh I love vegetable soup and would have never thought of making it with V8. I am totally pinning this for later. YUMMY

  41. Carmen Perez (listen2mama) on October 14, 2014 at 6:21 pm

    This looks super delicious! I am a soup person and I especailly love them in the Fall. Looks pretty easy to make also, thanks for the recipe!

    • Shauna on October 16, 2014 at 6:34 pm

      Right? Perfect for fall… I totally have to check it out for myself.

  42. Catherine S on October 14, 2014 at 6:21 pm

    I can use more vegetables in my diet. This recipe sounds really good. I will have to try it.

  43. Myrah - Coupon Mamacita on October 14, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    I’ve never cooked with V8, but this dish looks wonderful. Talk about a very veggie vegetable soup. One bowl must equal an entire day’s serving of veggies with V8 as a base!

  44. michele d on October 14, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    That looks so yummy! I love soups on a cold rainy day.

  45. Meagan on October 14, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    Looks like the perfect fall recipe! Great way to use V8!

  46. Jennifer Sikora on October 14, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    That looks delicious! I have never thought to use V8 in my soups and stews. That would be an awesome shortcut.

  47. jo on October 14, 2014 at 5:13 pm

    I love it! I haven’t tried making a vegetable soup and I never knew I could use Tortellini with it. LOL. Thanks to your post now I know what to serve this cold season. 😀

  48. Bonnie @ wemake7 on October 14, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    I love V8 but haven’t had any in a long time. This looks fabulous. Thanks for the recipe.

  49. Liz Mays on October 14, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    It makes perfect sense to use V8 as a base for vegetable soup! This sounds really tasty.

  50. Lisa Bristol on October 14, 2014 at 4:44 pm

    I have loved cooking with V8 Juice foir years. My favorite recipe to make with it is to pour a mug full add a few dashes of hot sauce and heat in microwave. Add cut up cheese cubes and eat like soup.

    • Meagan on October 16, 2014 at 3:48 pm

      What a great idea! One more delicious way to use V8!

  51. Krystal on October 14, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    That looks delicious. I would have never thought to use V8 in a recipe. Very creative!

  52. Tammi @ My Organized Chaos on October 14, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    Oh wow, my mouth is watering! I love this recipe, saving to make this week. Thanks!

  53. Stacie on October 14, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    We love our veggies! Can’t wait to try this recipe on a chilly fall day!

  54. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on October 14, 2014 at 1:28 pm

    That sounds really good. I never would have thought to cook with v8.

  55. Paula on October 14, 2014 at 1:09 pm

    Yum, that looks great! Those tortellini are a shape I’ve never seen before!
