Monday Morning Cooking Club Minestrone

Quick prep, slow cooked, super delicious, really simple.

We’ve fallen in love with this minestrone. It is such a simple recipe – but the long cooking time provides a beautiful richness and depth of flavour.

If it is too thick towards the end of cooking, add some more water. If you would like to add some small pasta shapes (like risoni), do so at the same time as the lentils along with an extra cup of water. And don’t forget to season to taste at the end – it’s really the most important step. If you prefer other veggies, you can add or substitute whatever takes your fancy. Think broccoli, pumpkin, potato, corn, squash, cauliflower…

Serve with crusty bread on the side and a generous sprinkle of parmesan.
