Minestrone Soup

June Campbell


This Minestroni soup is fast, economical, healthy and delicious. Its vegan since most packaged pasta is vegan. Moreover, this soup could be made gluten free if you used quinoa instead of pasta. It lends itself well to substitutions. I added a few garlic cloves with the onions at the beginning, and I used white kidney beans since cannellini wasn't available at the time.
