This soups is so quick and easy I love it anytime. The best part of this soup is cutting the broccoli and cauliflower really small, it is a little more work, but so worth it.

    Tasteless, first recipe from your site that my family disliked.

    • That is so strange, I just made it again last night, the only addition is I liked to sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top, but we all loved it, I am looking forward to leftovers for lunch.

  2. One of the things I learned early on as a home cook is to taste while cooking. So if something seems in need of seasoning, I add more. I make so many different versions of minestrone soup — usually add lots more herbs and usually fresh ones, but everyone’s taste buds are different, so recipes that are as flexible as soup have to be seasoned with flexibility, don’t you think?
