It’s officially winter in our house, which means the jumpers are out, the heating on and soup is being made. We love soup. What’s not to love…it can be packed with veggies, warms you up and is easy to make.
Yesterday was a rush around day and I knew we were out over lunch so would come back home starving, wanting an instant late munch. So whilst baby had her lunch I threw together this 10 minute Minestrone number. The added bonus being it was made from store cupboard ingredients and our version was wheat/gluten free, plus baby friendly 🙂
Here’s what I did…
Put 1 tin of chopped tomatoes in a pan with 1 litre hot water and a salt stock cube (gluten free and low salt in our case), of course you could use fresh stock if you are clever enough to have some. As this all comes up to simmer add in some broken up thin noodles or spaghetti. We used rice vermicelli which cooks almost as soon as it hits the water. Whilst that is simmering for a couple of minutes, dash to your freezer and pull out a bag of frozen veggies, add about 300g. Let the whole thing simmer for a few minutes, season well and there it is. Soup in 10 minutes. Enjoy.
What’s your favourite soup? I’d love to hear your recipes.
