Minestrone is a traditional Italian soup.

It has a thick, almost stew-like, consistency composed of seasonal ingredients and whatever leftovers you might find in your pantry.

This warm, hearty, delicious soup is easy to make and can be enjoyed in any season. When possible, use fresh, organic and local.

Preparation
  1. Warm oil in a large soup pot.

  3. Add water to cover vegetables and bring to a boil.  Add bay leaves, salt, and pepper.

Ideas
  • Great way to use up bits of left over or broken dry pasta.
  • Feel free to mix up the beans (try mung dal, chickpeas, kidney beans or navy beans).
Seasonal Considerations
  • Play around with adding your favourite seasonal veggies such as peas, squash, sweet potato, sprouts, spinach or kale.  Try your favourite fresh herbs as well.
  • Experiment with how much water to add.  The beans, lentils, and pasta drink up a lot of the broth, especially as it sits and you have it the next day.  In the spring and summer, you may enjoy a lighter soup.
