It’s that time of year for cozy cups of tea and hearty bowls of soup. You can’t go wrong with Minestrone Soup!
* you can use fresh tomatoes or 2 cans of tomatoes. It’s really your own preference. Without any canned tomatoes, you can use 8 tomatoes chopped as a substitute. If using only cans, my preference is to use 2 cans of fire roasted tomatoes.
** you can use a variation of this Italian Herb Blend- you can add a small amount of those ingredients, or buy a blend that has similar ingredients. If it’s easier to just use a blend, do it! I always taste my broth and adjust spices as needed.
