Grey Day Minestrone Soup

Summer Squash

Assortment of summer squash from the Farmer’s Market

I passed a Farmer’s Market stand yesterday that had a colourful assortment of zucchini and crook-neck squash. Perfect for a minestrone soup.

  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tins of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tin of small white beans
  • 4 stalks of celery
  • 2 cups chopped carrots
  • chopped kale
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 small yellow crook neck squash
  • 1 small Cousa squash
  • 1 onion
  • 1 cup Morningstar Farms Recipe Crumbles
  • 2 tbsp basil
  • 1 tbsp oregeno
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup pasta

Place all ingredients except the pasta in to the slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours. Add the pasta, and cook on low for another 30 minutes. Serve with grated cheese.
