Fresh Take on Minestrone Soup

A warm, comforting bowl of soup is perfect on a chilly day for lunch or dinner. Now that it’s finally feels like Winter in New York City, I like to make a large batch soup for Hubby and me to have for the week.

I made Rachel Khoo’s fresh take on Minestreone Soup. Her recipe is very flexible, and you can add whatever you have in your fridge and/or cupboard. It’s also fun and simple to make, especially in advance. It was so delicious, warm and comforting.
