Garbanzo Minestra (New!)

Best Blog Tips

We love savory recipes at home. Minestra (an Italian soup) is one of our favorite ways to eat beans! This garbanzo or chickpea Minestra is easy and is so tasty it will become one of your favorites!

3 cups of chickpeas already cooked
1 cup sweet yellow squash or Butternut squash, peeled and cubed
3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 carrots, peeled and sliced thick
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 large onion, peeled and cut in half
1 tsp. sweet paprika powder
Salt to taste
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp. sweet basil
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 cup pasta of your choice (penne, mostaccioli, even elbows!)
Optional: 1 Tbsp. vegan chicken-style seasoning

In a pot, put all the ingredients except the pasta. Cover ingredients with water and cook till the vegetables begin to be soft. Once the veggies begin to get soft, add the pasta. When the pasta has reached the point you like it at (al dente or a little more cooked but not soggy) and while there is still plenty of the broth left for it to absorb the flavors of the soup, the Minestra is done!

Serve with with brown rice and a good salad of your choice, perhaps, if you have time, a light dessert.

Serves 4
