Growing up, a hearty minestrone soup was one of my favorites. Luckily for my mom, it also had tons of veggies in it which I never seemed to mind! This gluten-free version has all the flavors, herbs, and veggies you love in a classic minestrone soup!
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 ribs celery, diced
- 4 carrots, diced
- 2 potatoes, diced small
- 1/2 cup green beans, trimmed
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, more to taste
- 1 bay leaf
- 6 cups Pacific Foods Organic Vegetable Broth, more as needed
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, more to taste
- 1 14.4 ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 15.5 ounce can cannellini beans
- 1 15.5 ounce can kidney beans
- 8 ounces gluten-free pasta
- 2 cups kale or spinach, roughly chopped
- Optional: 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more as desired
- Heat oil over medium heat in a large dutch oven.
- Add onion, garlic, celery, and carrots and cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Toss in the potatoes, and add more oil in this step if needed. Let cook until the potato starts to soften, about 5 minutes. Add green beans, salt, black pepper, bay leaf and Italian seasoning, Mix well.
- Pour in vegetable broth and mix, making sure to scrape up all of the bits from the bottom of the pan.
- Add fresh thyme, 1 can of diced tomatoes, and the kidney beans. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are just tender.
- While cooking, in a separate pot cook pasta as directed based on the package. Set aside.
- Turn off heat of the soup and add kale or spinach. Mix well until greens have wilted. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
- Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Serve hot, with added pasta as desired, topped with red pepper flakes if using!
- When reheating this soup, feel free to add more vegetable broth as necessary.
- I add the pasta as serving to avoid it soaking up all of the liquid. If saving the pasta for later, place in a tupperware tossed with a little olive oil to avoid the pasta hardening and sticking together.
