Heart Minestrone Soup
In: Mains, Recipes, Soups & Stews0

This hearty minestrone soup is a great way to get more veggies into your diet to up your immune system. The key to this recipe is using up all the odds and ends of fresh and or frozen veggies you have lying around the house. So if you don’t have everything on the list, just substitute. Try using black beans instead of chickpeas, celery instead of corn, zucchini or mushrooms instead of green beans. Just about anything goes!

To give it even more heartiness, you can lay down a bed of spinach before filling the bowl or add leftovers grains from the fridge to the bowl too. Once you make it once, we suggest doubling the recipe…for good measure and lots of yummy eat in or school & work meals for the family.
