The video convinced me! Mine is on the stove now, minus the cranberry beans and chard. I'm using cannelini, red kidney beans and spinach. Looks and smells great!

Everything is enough visible. Thanks a lot for such a special manner of minestrone cooking. But the list of the ingredients would be very useful :)
