How to make Minestrone Soup

This is one of my favourite soups of all time. It can be prepared quickly and kept for in the fridge for later consumption. It is a healthy vegetarian dish, excellent for weight watchers.

  1. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pot.
  2. Sautee onions until they turn translucent
  3. Add the harder veggies ie carrots and celery and cook them until soft, add the garlics. Cook for a further 1 to 2 mins till garlics start to brown slightly.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients, tomatoes, concentrates, cucumber and red kidney beans, water and veggie stock and bring to a boil.
  5. When the soup starts to boil, lower heat and let it simmer for 20 to 25 mins.
  6. Season with pepper and salt to taste.

To make it a full meal, add some cooked macaroni or farfalle to the serving. And there you have it, a hearty soup dish.
