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.

Electric Pressure Cooker Soup

I make a very similar soup in the bottom of my electric pressure cooker while steaming my paleo stuffed peppers on the top rack. The drippings make this soup irresistible and the smell is divine!


This soup packs a lot of veggie punch. It does take some time for prep but it comes together nicely. The one thing that gave me pause was the lack of salt in the recipe. Salt is flavor. Don't rely on it to come from the canned ingredients. I sprinkled some kosher salt on the veggies as they cooked and at the end, to taste. If you find this soup to be bland, look to perhaps the lack of salt in the ingredient list. A little kosher salt goes a long way to open up the flavors.

Its probably on purpose - salt causes weight gain in many - and this soup is often used for losing weight.


While the prep took a little time, this soup was well worth it! I added seasoning (oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper) and it was wonderful. I will definitely make this again. Even my husband like it.

excellent recipe

I make a lot of soup, this is one of my favorites! I made mine according to the recipe with the following modifications: I didn't add cauliflower (forgot to buy it), I used fire roasted diced tomatoes, I did not add water, and I added about 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning. I also slow cooked some beef stew meat ahead of time and added it. It was fantastic!

very healthy, makes a lot of soup

I took another reviewer's suggestion and added some jalapeño in with the onions and garlic. I'm not a huge fan of brothy type soups, so I decided to puree mine in the blender. It is delicious- can't stop eating it!
