Healthy Tomato Minestrone Soup

Healthy Tomato Minestrone Soup

I’m a big fan of soup – and it’s an easy way of getting the children to eat up more vegetables – so this recipe is a winner twice over. I used a lot more cayenne pepper than the original recipe suggested to spice things up – and I resisted reaching for my immersion blender and was glad I did. Filling and satisfying.

Ingredients

  • Tomato Minestrone Soup
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped Vidalia onion
  • 1/8 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup peeled and diced sweet potato
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes (I like Pomi – no hidden salt, sugar or additives)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 cup steamed fresh spinach
  • 1 cup chopped and steamed kale
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Makes 2 generous servings of 8 ounces each
  • Place ¼ cup vegetable broth in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the broth starts to boil add the onion, celery and sweet potatoes and sweat from about 8 minutes.
