Minestrone Verde

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Vic17460

I can't say enough about this minestrone: it is light enough for summer fair, in fact great on the patio. It is most quick, very attractive, containing lots of flavors. It has no cholesterol, is low in fat, and delivers lots of fiber, vitamins, and mineral. With a foccacia and a dry white, this caps a busy day with civilized luxury. I picked the receipt from the BEAN EDUCATION & AWARENESS NETWORK

Really nice, simple soup. Very filling and tasty. Made as written except that I sauteed the onions slightly before adding the broth. Good tasting and good for you. Thanks for sharing!
