Classic Minestrone

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
Good base recipe. Two tips: 1. add 1clove of garlic with the sauteed veg. 2. intermediate step, after veg are mostly sauteed, add the tomatoes and thyme and cook for 2min. Then add a couple cups of tomato juice and reduce it down by half, THEN add the veg stock. Salting the tomato while reducing helps richen it as well. Idk why, it just works. I always add chopped kale (or spinach if you prefer) to minestrone, cause its good for you :) Also my opinion thyme and bay leaf ARE the appropriate herbs. AVOID THE TEMPTATION TO ADD BASIL. Enjoy!
