Weeknights Deserve Awesomeness. Weeknights Deserve This Minestrone Soup.Soups / April 3, 2017
If you ever need to develop your biceps, just lift one of those heavy iron Dutch Ovens from you cabinet to your stove and back again. You won’t need an exercise plan ever again. Which is great because all the good food coming out of it will require a little calorie burning.
Not so with this quick and flavorful Minestrone Soup. Full of vegetables and heart healthy fats, every spoonful will make you feel good about eating something hearty. Coming together quickly with lots of ingredients in a can or easy to chop, it’s the perfect weeknight indulgence.
If you’re wanting a Dutch Oven of your own I suggest you run right out and get one! (After you read my entire post, of course…), Le Creuset being one of the most popular makers of Dutch Ovens, but almost any brand will make this soup just as SOUPER…
You’ve seen Minestrone a thousand times. What makes mine so special? Besides the love I impart it’s about layering flavors. And once you master this process you can make almost any kind of soup you want and it will far surpass anything you’ve made preciously by just dumping and heating everything together.
Here’s where the Dutch Oven makes you a rock star. It allows you to do everything well, especially caramelize the meat leaving bits of flavor that you then scrape up when you add stock. Then just roll that goodness into the rest of the broth. It’s a foolproof way to please everyone that love to eat. (Yes, everyone.)
