Veg Minestrone Soup with Fusilli Pasta
Minestrone soup is an Italian Soup which is a combination of pasta, beans, and lots of green and orange veggies. This is one of the healthiest soup. Again it’s quick and easy to make. Takes less than 15 minutes to prepare. I have used zucchini (both green & yellow), carrot, french beans, broccoli and red beans for this soup. If you are not using canned beans, then first thing to do is soak them 5 – 8 hrs. then pressure cook for 2 whistles or till its soft and cooked fully. I avoid cooking beans and veggies together as I don’t want my veggies to loose their glaze and color because of excess cooking. And these exotic vegetables takes lesser time to cook than that of the beans. So what I did here is I pressure cooked the beans with pasta for 2 whistles. Then mixed them with rest pan of vegetables. This reduced cooking time to half.
Soups are one of the best part of our food. These are loaded with vitamins and minerals. They are quick recipes and best comfort food.
