This minestrone soup is the perfect recipe to celebrate your veggies! It's comforting, warming, super hearty and delicious.
Get the pot back on the stove over medium heat. Add your oil, then add your onions, garlic, carrots, celery, thyme, bay leaves, parsley stalks and fry for a couple of minutes. Next add your stock back to the pot, bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer those ingredients for about 15-20 minutes.
Add your Swiss chard and your zucchini then simmer the soup for a couple more minutes.
Add the pasta and the beans and just warm those ingredients through. And if you feel that it's necessary to add a splash of extra stock, feel free to do so.
Pick your basil leaves, roll them up like a cigar then shred them, add them to your minestrone then turn the heat off.
