Veggistrone

January/February 2013

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (246 votes)

This vegetable-packed minestrone soup recipe is inspired by a popular Weight Watchers vegetable soup recipe. It makes a big pot of soup, so keep some in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and freeze the rest of the vegetable minestrone soup in single-serve portions. That way you always have an easy, delicious vegetable soup to start your meal or to eat for lunch. Think of this vegetable minestrone recipe as a starting point for other healthy soup variations, too: toss in leftover chopped cooked chicken or whole-wheat pasta or brown rice to make it more satisfying.

A nice combination of vegetables and a very comforting soup but needs to be "doctored" a bit or else a bit bland. I added extra seasonings (Italian) and garlic as well as a Parmesan rind. I used this as a base for a chicken veggie minestrone and added diced roasted chicken breast, broken whole wheat spaghetti (4 oz.) and a bit of pesto to finish. With these changes it had more flavor and I could see this recipe as a canvas for many other tasty variations.

What where the changes in the nutritional values with all these changes? Seems like the sodium count would be too high for someone with high blood pressure??

I was dissapointed

I made this recipe following it to a tee. The only addition I made was adding brown rice. It smelled great, especially when the basil was added. But when I went to eat it I didn't end up liking it. It is kind of bland. I am a huge veggie lover and soup lover so I was surprised that I didn't like it. I think it needs more garlic and maybe putting some jalepenos in with the onion/garlic step would give it some more flavor and kick. I don't know, I just found it bleh and now I'm stuck with so much leftover. This made 12 servings for me too.

healthy and lots of vegetables, easy to add to and make a fuller meal (like rice or noodles)
