This traditional Itaian soup is a super delicious, super good for you meal. This is one of my favorite recipes for Minestrone, another will be in my upcoming cookbook. There are as many ways to make minestrone as there are cooks so don't be afraid to add or omit anything you would like. Add some crusty bread and enjoy this wonderful homey meal! If your family follows a meatless meal day...this is an excellent option!
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan, over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, and garlic….sauté for
several minutes then add zucchini, green beans and celery. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook for
15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
This soup tastes better on day two, so consider making it the night before if possible!
You can add kidney or black beans as well if you are looking for a heartier soup. Feel free to
experiment with different veggies as well.
