A new face on an old favorite, our Garden Minestrone is a delightful mix of the freshest vegetables, hand cut with love by our hard-working soup crew. Feel free to enjoy it as is, or toss in some prosciutto to make it smoky and scrumptious. Delicious and packed full of veggies!
Garden Minestrone with Cheese Crouton
French onion soup is an all-time favorite! Bread, cheese and a flavorful broth are a delectable combination, so why not try a version with our favorite Italian spices? Using crockwear or another oven-safe bowl, fill with hot Garden Minestrone and top with a thick slice of crusty bread. Sprinkle generously with provolone and melt under a medium heat broiler. Melt until bubbly, brown and irresistible. Pair with Sauvignon Blanc.
Garden Minestrone with Antipasto Plate
A bowl of Garden Minestrone is the perfect accompaniment to a mouth-watering antipasto plate. Salami, prosciutto, olives, banana peppers, cheeses, marinated artichoke hearts and pickles are some ideas to create your own antipasto selection. Rice crackers are great with cheese and salami, or you can opt for bread and cheese to dip in the hot soup. Great fun for a group dinner! Pair with Pinot Gris.
Garden Minestrone with Small Shell Pasta
Combining a little pasta with our Garden Minestrone adds a traditional ingredient we omitted to keep the soup gluten-free. However, many stores are now stocking gluten-free pastas, which work beautifully in our Garden Minestrone. (Regular semolina pasta is also fine – the choice is yours.) Conchiglie, or shell-shaped noodles, are traditionally used in minestrone. Pair with Barolo.
Garden Minestrone with Wild Rice
Wild rice is a welcome change from white rice, but both work nicely in this soup. A ½ cup of cooked wild rice is perfect for a container of Garden Minestrone. Wild rice requires a bit more cooking time than white rice, but is well worth the wait. Alternatively, many grocery stores now carry pre-cooked wild rice which you can add directly to the soup! Pair with Shiraz.
Garden Minestrone with Italian Sausage
Brown ¼ pound of Italian sausage (sweet or spicy), then add it to one container of Garden Minestrone in a sauce pan. Heat to desired temperature and serve with a grilled pesto and mozzarella panini.
Garden Minestrone with Pot Roast
Cooks everywhere are rediscovering the delicious, juicy magic of pot roast. Our Garden Minestrone, with its light broth and fresh vegetables, transforms into a hearty stew with the addition of slow-cooked beef. Simply shred 1 cup of pot roast into the soup while it’s heating. Serve with a green salad and some warm bread. Pair with Merlot.
