    What’s the best way to use meat in this recipe? I’m looking for more protein in my meals, but perhaps the beans are enough?

      Have the soup with a nice grill cheese sandwich. Or grilled ham and cheese. But….This soup is a great way to have a vegan lunch. Just eat more. Have you proteins for dinner.

    Hey! I could never say no to a minestrone. This is my favorite food ever! My mamma used to make it for me every week and now I make it as often as I can. So healthy and nutritious!

    This sounds great, we love soup. I would omit the potato, for personal taste reasons, but, I’ll make this.

    This looks so comforting

    Love this soup! Only 2 things I’d add. Italians put in the heel of a Parmesan rind which adds so much umami and is sooo tasty. I also throw in a small 4 oz can of V8 and it adds just a little extra veg punch. Bonus if you make too much, it freezes well and is so nice to just heat up on a busy night.

    Minestrone is by far my favorite soup, I could eat it every day I swear. I’ve never made my own though!

    This is the best minnestroni I’ve made in a long time. The fennel was subtle in the finish, the zucchini contrasted so well with the soft potatoes. Yum!

    Want to make this for lunch! Just wondered if I could substitute other vegetables for the cabbage & zucchini (only ingredients I don’t have & I don’t want to go to the store). Thank you!

      Hi Janet, minestrone can be made with any vegetables, the best ones to use are the ones that are in season where you are.
