My Healthy, Fast and Classic Minestrone Soup Recipe
Are in you in mood for soup?
I am always on the lookout for good recipes to feed my big family. When you are feeding a family of 10 not everyone likes everything you make. There is one soup that they all eat and love. It is my fast and healthy Minestrone Soup. It is so good and inexpensive to make for the family. I make a pot of this soup and serve it with a big green salad and a loaf of French bread and there are no leftovers. I naturally have to double this recipe to feed my hungry family. What I like about this recipe is it quick to prepare and so healthy on those nights when making dinner is a struggle.
Diana's Original Minestrone Soup
1 large onion, chopped
4 carrots, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
1/2 cup of uncooked small pasta such as elbow
1 (14.5 oz.) can of diced tomatoes
4 cups of chicken broth
2 cups water
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp black pepper
1 (14.4 oz.) can cut green beans
½ cup of chick peas, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz.) can dark kidney beans, rinsed and drained
Combine onions, carrots, celery, dry pasta, tomatoes in juice, chicken broth, water, oregano, black pepper in a large pot over stove and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered until carrots are soft and pasta is soft, about 15 minutes. Add green beans, chick peas and kidney beans and simmer until hot. We garnish our soup with some fresh parmesan cheese and serve!
*I sometimes add a little more broth to my soup if I feel like some of the liquid cooked off.
Makes 5 servings.
