THE KING OF GRANDMA’S ITALIAN VEGETABLE SOUP: MINESTRONE

Grandma’s vegetable soup is a traditional dish made with garden vegetables and legumes.

A poor dish that our grandmothers often prepared with garden produce.


There are many versions of minestrone, even depending on the season in which it is prepared.

This is my recipe, I hope you like it!

Finely chop zucchini, carrots, potatoes, and celery.

Cut the savoy cabbage into coarse pieces.

In a tall pot, we brown the vegetables in a little oil.

We continue until they begin to stick to the pan.

We cover the vegetables with the broth.

We let it cook until the vegetables are cooked.

We take the bread, cut away the edges, and cut it into small cubes.

We fry the bread in plenty of olive oil.

When it reaches golden brown, we remove it and dry it with paper towels and mix with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

We serve in the dishes and add the bread croutons.
