Winter Minestrone

Minestrone means “big soup.” It’s the most popular and recognizable Italian soup. It’s known as ”big soup” because well-made minestrone is thick and hearty. It originated in Northern Italy and, although there are many different versions of this soup, what they all have in common are cut up vegetables simmered for a long time in water or stock, and you end up with rich vegetable soup. For me there is nothing like a bowl of minestrone on a cold winter day.
