Vegetable minestrone soup is one of those hearty meals that’s warm and comforting but also a cinch to pull together.
As the temperatures continue to drop during the fall and winter months, it’s nice to stay warm with simple, easy comfort foods. And this nourishing soup that’s bursting with noodles and fresh vegetables certainly fits the bill for delicious comfort food!
With so many fresh, quality ingredients in this recipe, it only made sense to use a high-quality noodle like No Yolks. Their noodles always cook up smooth, firm, and fluffy.
And they’re not just for stroganoff, casserole, or pasta. The No Yolks noodles are great for soups like Miso, Frech Onion, and…yes! Vegetable Minestrone!
I know you don’t traditionally put noodles in minestrone soup, but we’re modernizing up our busy moms recipes this year!
Adding a batch of high, quality, No Yolks noodles is an awesome way to add a dose of fun hearties to your classic recipes!
Don’t be afraid to be adventurous and add a few new ingredients like spinach or kale! Those always add a bit of yummy, green pizazz to everyday meals.
Guess what, busy moms? This recipe takes less than thirty minutes to make. Who needs fast food now? Not you! Not with this recipe! For a healthy meal that’s simple to pull together on a busy night, simply serve up this minestrone soup with a warm, crusty bread and a green salad. It’s an inviting spread that the whole family will rush to the table for!
No Yolks noodles come in a variety of cuts for all types of recipes including Broad, Extra Broad, Fine, Kluski, Dumplings, and even Stir-Fry. Ooooh! Our family LOVES stir fry!
The Broad cut is what I used to make this particular batch of warm Minestrone soup, but I’m a fan of getting creative in the kitchen and trying other cuts. I bet those Dumpling noodles would be amazing in this soup too!
