If you have heard the fable of the man who made ‘stone’ soup, you are sure to be reminded of it when you make minestrone! this delectable italian soup has everything you could wish for – a whole basket of crunchy, tasty, colourful veggies tossed into the pot together with a ladleful of rice or noodles to make it all the more sumptuous. Bay leaves, oregano and pepper give it a wonderful aroma, while tomato gives it a much-needed tang. A sprinkling of cheese and a dollop of butter complete this one-dish meal, which is also very easy to make.
