Minestrone Soup Recipe Vegan friendly

Minestrone Soup

 

Minestrone soup, is a store cupboard dependable in this house. I had Italian neighbours in a previous house and loved to smell their pot of soup bubbling away for the next day.

This Italian origin soup is made with vegetables, often with the addition of pasta.  Usually made with ingredients including beans, onions, celery, carrots, stock, and tomatoes.

Did you know there is actually no set recipe for minestrone?  It is usually made out of whatever vegetables you have? We had sprouts leftover so these went into the pot.  This version uses vegetable stock so is vegan friendly.
