Plant-Based Minestrone Soup

This hearty and nutritious plant-based minestrone soup is a tasty crowd-pleaser and is super-easy to tweak depending upon the vegetables you have in the fridge. My plant-based minestrone is packed with fibre from the onions, garlic, whole wheat spaghetti, borlotti beans, courgettes, spring greens, tomatoes, celery, tomatoes and carrots.

It’s so hearty, you can have a big steaming bowl of it for lunch and it’ll keep you feeling full all afternoon.

If you don’t have the veggies in the house that I used, use whatever you’ve got to hand. It’s a great soup to make at the end of the week to use up all the little left over veg you have, and once you’ve made it, you can keep it, eat it or freeze it to have later.
