Minestrone - a bowl full of goodness.

Updated: Sep 28, 2020

Made with lots of vegetables, greens and beans this dish is a super healthy mixture, that lets you fill up with a variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and other nutrients that help you stay young and healthy, strong and full of energy. What's more - making it this time of year means if you're lucky like I was, you can cut up all the vegetables at the garden table and your eyes won't water when you cut the onions.
