A comforting minestrone soup that’s also perfect for spring!
In a large pot, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Add the white parts of the green onion and the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
Add the potatoes, stir to combine and cook 1 minute. Add the diced tomatoes with their liquid, the vegetable stock and chicken stock. Add salt to taste, bring to a simmer then lower to medium-low heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the artichoke hearts, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the chickpeas and green peas, cover again, and cook 5 minutes more.
Add the asparagus. Cook, uncovered, 2 minutes. Add the greens and the green parts of the onions. Stir well to combine and cook 1 minute.
Turn off the heat and stir in the pesto. Top each serving with freshly grated Parmesan.
Happy spring cookin’!
This is an adaptation of Simply Recipe’s Spring Minestrone Soup.
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
