Minestrone Soup

July 29, 2022

This is our take on Minestrone Soup

and there are 1000’s of variations our there. Change it up to suit yourself.

Everything about winter to me SCREAMS – SOUP!! And this winter is no different.

Tomato Soup – OMG the one on Cookidoo is amazing – Move over Mr. Heinz – Cookidoo

Scotch Broth – YUM – Cookidoo

and of course everyones favourite – Hug In A Mug Chicken Soup – Cookidoo – the only thing I don’t like about this is the smell of it cooking. I don’t know but…. No! Taste is incredible – as long as I don’t have to smell it – hahaha

This is our Minestrone – Enjoy. Serves with freshly baked bread and oh I am in Heaven! Thanks Chris – he is the bread king in our home.
