Soup Sunday! Hearty, Authentic, Traditional, Italian Vegetable Minestrone

Minestrone is one of my favorite soups. It's simple, delicious, and satisfying. Fortunately (especially with VitaClay) it's just as easy to make as it is simple and delicious to eat.

This is a great recipe to bring to someone who is sick, or to freeze and keep for future no-fuss meals. Make a big batch and freeze it to have a handy small meal or appetizer on hand whenever you need a quick pick-me-up! 

Ingredients for Hearty Italian Vegetable Minestrone:

  • ¾ c dry canelli beans, soaked and drained
  • ¼ c dry garbanzo beans, soaked and drained
