How to prepare soup:
In a pot, put all ingredients, except the pasta and the white cabbage, but including the dumplings.
Cook over a slow heat until vegetables are tender. When they begin to get tender, add the pasta and the white cabbage. Soup will be ready when the pasta is al dente and the cabbage is tender (but not soggy.)
Add the rice by the tablespoon when you serve.
1- You can add Navy or Cannellini beans (pre-cooked) when you add the pasta.
2- You can add 2 Tbsp. of your homemade vegan chicken-style seasoning
3- You can prepare any of our sausage recipes, making sure they turn out firm,
cook them and slice them into the soup when you add the pasta to cook it.
4- To give the soup a minestrone flavor, add 1 bay leaf, 1/4 tsp. dried thyme, 1/2 tsp. dried sage
