      I am in love. I could eat bowl after bowl of this wonderful soup. I added a can of tomatoes and some white wine to the cooking. I loved the fennel as well. Chopped fresh fennel would be good in this soup.

      The secret to the good taste is the broth. We prefer doing making the broth because some ready-made vegetable broths taste salty. To make your own broth, simply add carrots and some fresh herbs, including a few slices of ham or beef and voila ! you´ve got the best spring minestrone :) Thanks for sharing NurseDi

      Homemade soup is something I enjoy having for lunch. This one tasted great and was healthy. I used fresh peas, asparagus, and baby spinach. I liked the flavor from the fennel. Very snappy. A very cool spring soup. Thanks.
