Summer minestrone 500ml – Serves two

£8.00

This summer minestrone is basically more of a vegetable stew than a soup. Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan it ticks all the boxes and if you add in the fact that it is best served cold then it becomes a serious contender for the starter of this summer season.

Gluten free, suitable for vegans.

LITTLE TIP

I prefer to eat this soup chilled with a generous pouring of the best oil I can find. If you want to serve it hot then do not warm for too long or the green vegetables will lose their vibrant colour.

Cooking and serving

Serve this soup hot or chilled. Heat the minestrone gently in a saucepan and do not overcook or you will lose the freshness of the vegetables. Add a teaspoon sized dollop of Pesto Genovese to each portion of hot soup. If you want serve this soup chilled, leave out the pesto and add a generous dollop of good olive oil at the table.

One pot serves two people.
