As I have said before, soup should be a food group…especially during the winter!
This hardy minestrone is super-healthy. You can opt to make it with or without the pasta. Also, you can experiment with using other beans other than the ones listed in this recipe.
I would recommend doubling the recipe and freezing the extra in some large-sized Ball jars. These are on sale usually every-other-week at Hobby Lobby!
We lived in Tokyo for 3 years and that is where we fell in love with soba noodles. The great thing about them is they are gluten free which means they will not leave you feeling over-stuffed.
This recipe can be also used by substituting rice for the soba noodles but I would recommend sticking with the noodles because they complement rather than overpower the veggies.
Sometimes when the day has completely worn you down it calls for something “comforting” for dinner.
I created this recipe based on my mom’s famous chicken and gravy. This one, however, is cruelty-free and opts for riced cauliflower to save on carbs and calories.
