Healthy! I used fresh carrots, potatoes, celery and onion (not frozen). I also could not find lima bean in my grocery store and substituted frozen edamame. I used swiss chard too. I used low fat pepperoni.
Minestrone with Endive & Pepperoni
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
Considering that this minestrone soup incorporates mostly frozen vegetables, it is remarkably savory and aromatic. Look for frozen soup or stew vegetables with potatoes, carrots, celery and onion in the mix to give the soup the best flavor. Although pepperoni isn’t traditionally part of minestrone soup, you’ll find it’s a great shortcut to add spicy, complex flavor.

Unbelievably nice! goes on my menu from now on!
I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and added a 1/2 of red wine. Even my husband loved it and he does not like Minestrone.
I used fresh vegetables instead of frozen--I just can bring myself to eat frozen veggies this early in the fall--edamame instead of lima beans, and fresh herbs and this was seriously one of the best soups I've ever made! This is going to be my staple vegetable soup from now on!
