I may be cheating by calling this soup ‘minestrone’ because, when I looked up the definition, here’s what I found:


1. a thick soup containing vegetables and pasta.

And, no, this soup doesn’t have pasta, but it has potatoes. Does that count? And it’s thick. So we’ll call it minestrone, okay?

    In Italy usually we prepare minestrone using only vegetables, when i was a kid i used to hate it: everytime my mom said “minestrone for lunch” we started to have strange headache or stomachache !!! but Now i cook it almost like you ( and more beans!) because it becomes more tasty!

      Giovanna! I trust you most of all to define Minestrone. Thank you so much.

  2. Paula @ Vintage Kitchen Notes says:

    It gets the point across, so minestrone works for me Marissa. We food blogger tend to stretch the meaning of some words. This is just the right soup for the chilly days here!

    I’m sure you could still call it minestrone! It looks delicious and I like the use of potatoes for a gluten free version 🙂
