When I think of Minestrone soup, I think of a hearty tomato-based soup that also has some veggies and some pasta.

Beyond that, the specifics of which veggies and pastas, is purely left to what I have on hand in my kitchen and what I may be craving at the moment.

Minestrone soups at the moment are featuring beans it would seem.
Legumes in general seem to be rather popular and popular not just with the folks avoiding meat- vegetarians and vegans especially. Legumes are said to be pretty healthy for us too.

The Mayo Clinic says that legumes, for the most part, are low in fat and contain no cholesterol. Legumes are also high in folate, potassium, iron and magnesium. Not only that, the Mayo Clinic says that legumes contain beneficial fats and soluble and insoluble fiber.

It is easy to see why people are leaning towards eating more legumes from what the experts are telling us.
Adding legumes to our food is one easy way to eat more of them. Minestrone Soup is one easy way to get more legumes into our diets.

I am making my Super Easy Minestrone Soup in a slow cooker.


Obviously, if you can make it in a slow cooker, you can most likely make it on the stove or elsewhere.
I just love the ease of putting ingredients into my slow cooker, going to yoga class, and then coming home to something wonderful to fill my tummy.
