How many times do you have a fridge drawer full of veggies that need to get used up?? This is a weekly occurrence for me: half a pepper, a whole zucchini shoved into the back and forgotten about, some grape tomatoes that are starting to get a little wrinkly. Clean out your fridge and make a big batch of soup, and you’ll not only utilize what you have and not throw money down the disposal, you’ll also have a really satisfying, delicious and healthy lunch for the week ahead.
I loosely refer to this hodgepodge soup as minestrone, which can be interpreted in many ways.
(Cookery) a soup made from a variety of vegetables and pasta
[from Italian, from minestrare to serve]
