vegan minestrone soup recipe with vitality beyond broth broth packet

Vegan Minestrone Soup

IT’S SOUP SEASON!

Winter isn’t my favorite because of snow and skiing and cozy nights and Christmas movie nights on the couch (well… maybe all of those are pretty great)… but it’s also because it’s the perfect time of year for throwing yummy vegetables into a pot and making easy delicious meal.

Soup can be cooked fairly easily and quickly.

It’s easily customizable.

There’s so many different varieties.

You can even cook it all day in a slow cooker and chow down once you get home from work or winter activities.

It’s seriously one of the easiest meals.

But just because it’s easy, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavor and nutrition.

Something that’s different from last year is that I was introduced to Beyond Broth. Beyond Broth is broth company that specializes in organic easy-to-use broth packets.

And it’s a fantastic way to instantly add loads of flavor to a soup or other recipe.

For my minestrone recipe, I added the “Vitality” Rosemary Thyme packets that has vegetable and spices like: sweet potato, carrot, beet, garlic, spinach, salt, lemon, parsley, celery seed, rosemary, thyme, pepper, and cayenne. All ingredients are organic, and vegan as well as soy and gluten free.

To amp up my minestrone soup recipe, I also added fresh tomatoes instead of canned diced tomatoes, and used some kale from my garden ( that I somewhat forgot about it).

So remember when trying this recipe, don’t be afraid to branch out to vegetables that may be on the verge of going bad. Experiment and eat the benefits.
