Minestrone with Endive & Pepperoni

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (66 votes)

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.

Sooo tasty and easy

Excellent flavor. I substituted the endive for spinach when I made it the second time and also used canned diced tomatoes with zesty green chilies. I added more broth and a little bit more pasta. It was perfect.

Good and easy

Not the best menestrone I have ever had but its the best I have ever made. It was really easy and had a good flavor. My family liked it and they aren't big soup people. I really like this recipe because it was easy, healthy and had a good flavor. I will probably make this again... I like chick peas in my minestrone and usually i use cabbage (like i did in this) rather than endive because i am not accustomed to buying endive but i will try with the endive and see what a difference it makes :)

flavorful, healthy

I used the new tiny round Turkey pepperoni in this, making it even more healthy. The veggie soup mix I found had the lima beans already in it, along with other veggies as well as those mentioned. I usually pick out the big chunks of veggies but loved all...the flavor is Awesome.
