I know, I was due to publish this recipe for a while now (look at our Instagram posts here
). So here it is, Homemade Minestrone Soup… comfort in a bowl
. As with many recipes, there is no standard way to make this, it’s simply an Italian soup made with seasonal vegetables that often includes pasta, rice, beans and different herbs. This particular recipe is from my One Pot Cookbook
, with small variations, such as using fresh tomatoes instead of canned, I also left out ¼ head of cabbage and used some spinach instead, and I also left out the red pepper flakes because of my daughter. You can always add a little spice to your own bowl after serving.
I love recipes that I can make using one skillet, one baking dish or one pot, they are fast and usually very hearty, and cleanup is easy. This is a recipe where I do prefer to use canned beans, such as cannellini because they are a bit larger than the dried beans we find in Guatemala, and their texture is creamier, and if possible use fresh herbs instead of dried. So, keep this recipe around for when the weather starts getting a little colder. Fall is just around the corner.
