Recipe tips
  • Minestrone is great for using up vegetables as you can add most veggies, for example parsnip, swede, potato, courgettes, peppers or aubergine.
  • Add more flavour with 1 tsp oregano and a few chilli flakes.
  • Make this veggie by using vegetarian pesto and vegetarian hard cheese, such as strong Cheddar cheese.
  • Freezing instructions: Can be frozen in small pots for individual portions. Defrost in a microwave and slowly until piping hot.
