עקסטרעם וועגאַן מאַקעאָווער: מינעסטראָנע זופּ מיט טורניפּ גרעענס אַדישאַן

Snow, snow, snow. It feels like it’s been snowing forever. Everywhere I look, all I see is white. צי ניט באַקומען מיר אומרעכט, it’s pretty but personally, I’m hoping Phil the Groundhog was right and that spring will be soon upon us.

This weather just demands foods that are warm, filling and comforting. It is definitely a season for soup. I wanted to make a minestrone soup but I was questioning whether adding pasta was a requirement since I wanted to keep it as low calorie as possible. What actually is the difference between minestrone and a tomato-based vegetable soup?

So I turned to the endless source of all-knowledge (as provided by other people just like you and me), וויקיפּעדיע. In short, here’s what I found out (the history of minestrone soup is amazingly detailed but you can look that up yourself if you’re snowed in and need something to do): the term “minestrone” is Italian for “one soup” אָדער “the big soup.” The name “Minestrone” is used for a variety of thick Italian soups made with veggies. There is no set recipe because people use whatever veggies are in season. Pasta or rice is optional. אָבער Angelo Pellegrini, author of “The Unprejudiced Palate” and possibly the first person to publish a pesto recipe in the U.S., insists that the base be made of beans, particularly Roman beans. That sounded fine to me. The pasta was out, beans and extra greens were in. So here is my recipe for Minestrone Soup with Turnip Greens.

    I’m glad I can make someone happy. This site makes me happy. Way I see it there just can’t be too many vegan sites or pages. Support is what it’s all about and the more support the more can make the crossover into a compassionate world! See you around. Thanks for caring.
