Minestrone is one of the most perfect soups to consume on a chilly, cloudy fall day. Of course, this soups is actually perfect any other time of the year too! But as the weather cools down, days become shorter, and we start thinking about the upcoming holidays, this recipe seems to be more attractive than ever. My version is a fully whole-food, plant-based recipe. I use only unrefined, unprocessed or minimally processed ingredients, including whole-grain pasta and brown rice.
