Italian Minestrone Soup

Hearty Minestrone Soup




Yield 5 servings

Warm, cozy and wholesome, this minestrone soup is the ultimate goodness in a bowl. Lots of vegetables, nourishing grains and lots of fresh herbs really bring this soup to life! 



  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot.
  2. Add the onions and garlic and sauté for a few minutes, until the onions are translucent. 
  3. Add all the vegetables and sauté for another 2 minutes. 
  4. Now add the tomatoes, salt and pepper and cover with lid. 
  5. Let the tomatoes cook for about 5 minutes, so that they lose their moisture and start softening. 
  6. At this point, add in the spinach and fresh herb. 
  7. Once the spinach completely wilts, add red kidney beans and the pasta/farro.
  8. Add the vegetable stock and bring it all to a boil. 
  9. Once the soup starts boiling, cover with a lid and let it simmer for about 10 minutes until the pasta/farro is completely cooked.
  10. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve pipping hot!
