New vegetarian soup at Picante

Picante has a new vegetarian soup. This is very exciting for me as I have looked longingly at the big bowls of rich looking chicken soup on cold nights, but I don't eat meat... It is described as a "vegetable soup with sorrel, hominy and pepitas". It's $6.95.

The soup is a bright green puree, with pieces of hominy peeking out. It is served with a side of lightly dressed greens; I think they were watercress. I didn't notice any pepitas. The soup was flavorful, tangy, and had a variety of textures, especially with the greens mixed in.

I thought it was delicious, and is a welcome addition to their vegetarian menu. It wasn't quite filling enough to be a full meal, but with a taco or some chips and guacamole, it is great.

I know a lot of people on this board don't like Picante, so I'm not trying to start a debate about the merits of the restaurant. I'm just excited about the new menu item!
