This is a delicious soup, which is packed full of veggies. Sauteed onion is simmered with potato, broccoli, sweetcorn, spinach, mushrooms, carrots, cabbage, noodles and beans in a chicken stock.
This was remniscient of chilly winter saturday afternoons. Although I must say there is no need for BOTH egg noodles AND potatoes (one or the other should do). Additionally, there is no need to first sautee the onion and garlic. Just throwing them in the pot works fine. And don't forget the salt and pepper- I threw in some fresh basil and thyme for extra flavour. - 26 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Skip the cabbage and use cauliflower,I added 1 14.5oz can tomatoes with roasted garlic and this was delicious. Better than most minestrone..Thank you Sweetiebritz! - 12 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe was so delicious-highly reccommended, especially for the cold season! My family and I loved it. I substituted vegetable broth (for the chicken), and regular noodles for the egg noodles since I'm vegan. Also added in some sun dried tomatoes. You can really use whatever variation of veggies you have in the kitch or what veggies you prefer. Will make this again! - 22 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
