Hearty Fall Minestrone
Last week I went to the Santa Monica Farmers Market and picked up some wonderful produce. I was in the mood for lots of vegetables, fall flavors and soup and it was the perfect place to get the ingredients for a wonderful Fall Minestrone.
The soup was loaded with vegetables: butternut squash, green beans, carrots, potatoes and kale. The potatoes made the soup thick and creamy, had a little bit of sweetness due to the butternut squash, and was very hearty and filling.
I made a large batch of the soup and froze individual portions for later. So now when I'm craving this soup I just have to take it out, heat and enjoy!
