minestrone soup

A bit of history…

Minestrone soup is a vegan / vegetarian delish ‘by necessity’. It goes all the way back to the Roman kingdom, pre-dating the Roman Republic, and later the Roman empire. Back then the local diet consisted of vegetables, and a filling porridge of spelt flour.

Nowadays still fully enjoyed in Italy and all over the world!

Minestrone soup ingredients

Minestrone soup is a hearty Italian vegetable soup, which traditionally is
made with left-over vegetables. So I would stick with the tradition
and use whatever vegetables you like in this soup. Think of for example;

  • onions
  • celery
  • carrots
  • tomatoes
  • beans
  • peas
  • parsnip
  • turnip
  • potato
  • sweet potato
  • pumpkin
  • cabbage
  • lentils
  • chickpeas
  • green leaves
  • and so on….

For me personally, The one thing not to cut out are the cannellini beans, I just love them! But on top of that they give the soup such an Italian feel and flavour. Some prefer to substitute the pasta for rice.

As you can see the options are just amazing with a minestrone soup recipe. So my recipe is just a start, an indication to making a full filling and warming minestrone soup.
