Awesome Veggie-Packed Minestrone Soup Recipe

We love converting processed canned stuff into easy, wholesome and delicious homemade masterpieces! Just like the healthiest cream of mushroom soup. This minestrone soup recipe was made after becoming tired of the excess salt and lack of vegetables in canned soup. It is very much a healthified version of it, with a much more refreshing taste to boot. This serves great with a hearty bread, romaine salad and a nice glass of red wine!

At the risk of sounding crazy among conservative cooks, I would really recommend you choose wholemeal pasta for the soup. Being firmer than regular pasta, it will hold up better and avoid forming starchiness within the soup itself. Not only that, it has triple the fibre of regular pasta, plus vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that even inulin-enriched pasta can’t quite match.
