Do you know what’s the difference between tomato soup and minestrone?
One day I was looking up that and found many article states that if the soup contains a variety of veggies even without tomato, it can be called minestrone.
I thought minestrone was a tomato soup with a variety of veggies (celery is a must,) but just veggie soup could be called minestrone, so it made me surprise. While there are so many article about what makes classic minestrone, most of them said if the soup contains pasta with other variety of veggies, it would be that.
As looking back my school lunch, I had minestrone but it didn’t have pasta in it. It had celeries, carrots, onions, but no pasta for sure. So when I read the article, I learned I was eating tomato soup that wants to be minestrone someday.
I still doubt soup with lots of veggies and pasta is the one to be called minestrone, but anyway I made the “classic” recipe of minestrone.
With a variety of veggies, mushrooms and even with carb, this is the easy and complete meal for just a bowl:)
