OMG! I have been cooking so much lately. I have lots of new recipes to share, but wanted to post this one today.
More to come, and a real update soon.
Le Alpi Minestrone
-taken from The Complete Book of Soups and Stews, by Bernard Clayton, Jr.
2.5 TB olive oil
Medium chopped onion
Approx ¾ C each:
-string beans cut on bias
-diced potato (I used new potatoes)
several stalks sliced celery
diced tomato (I used grape tomatoes, recipe calls for 1 medium)
1 ½ quart water (6 cups)
Fresh ground pepper
½ chopped parley
Chopped garlic, maybe 2-3
Grated parmesan cheese for garnish
In a large pot, sauté onions in olive oil, abt. 10 min. At 2-min. intervals, add all the vegetables, one at a time (it’s good to start with the potato).
Cover the veg with water and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to a simmer. Halfway into the cooking add salt, pepper, parsley, and garlic. Finish cooking.
This makes 4-6 servings of a simple, healthy, soup.
