Easy Vegan Minestrone

 Fall is my favorite time of the year mainly because a nutritious soup is one of my favorite meals.

And its days like these when the temperature drops that I’m absolutely craving a warm bowl. 

Minestrone is one of the easiest recipes to make with only a handful of wholesome ingredients and not a lot of time. The recipe is hearty and versatile. I love adding seasonal fall or winter vegetables to my stock pot to really bring the traditional dish to life, and give it a little twist!

Your typical minestrone consists of vegetables, potatoes, beans, and pasta. The recipe originates as an Italian recipe. I decided to give that classic remedy a little twist and make it gluten-free,  vegan, and completely wholesome. This recipe is perfect to make in bulk for lunches and tastes better than any store bought recipe for sure!

So what will you need?

2 tbsp EVOO

1/2 sweet onion minced

4-5 garlic cloves minced (or more for your liking)

1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes (or jarred diced tomatoes, I like jova)

3 stalks chopped celery

3 peeled and chopped carrots

2 cups vegetable broth

1 tbsp Italian seasoning

1 small zucchini chopped

1 handful or two of chopped kale

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1 cup of cooked white beans

Pinch of pink salt & pepper

Optional: top with hemp seeds, or fresh parsley or basil.

Optional: Your favorite cooked pasta (I used @eatbanza chickpea pasta )

To make:

Heat a stock pot with EVOO until hot. Add onions until translucent.

Next add garlic, celery, and carrots.

Saute for about a minute or two then add beans, zucchini, tomatoes, kale, broth, salt, pepper, seasonings.

Simmer with the lid on until vegetables are soft.

Optional: Add cooked pasta of choice, stir. (Add 1-2 tsp pasta water for flavor)

Optional: Sprinkle with hemp seeds or fresh herbs.
