The vegetable soup recipes page has sprung to life and it's growing fast. New ones are being added regularly. So, make sure you check back often.

Yum! There's nothing like a bowl of homemade hearty soup to bring warmth, comfort and leave your tummy full.

Lucky for me I live in the Cowichan Valley where I have access to locally grown veggies.

Shout out to my three favourite places to veggie shop at; the Saturday Duncan Farmers Market, The Old Farm Market & Russell Farms Market.

I find making soup is a great way to use up older veggies that are kicking around. Often times I'm inspired to make soup by whatever's on the discount rack at the store.

Minestrone Genovese Soup Recipe 

Minestrone Genovese Soup Ingredients

  • 2 cups dried white beans * or canned rinsed and drained
  • 4 dried mushrooms
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups diced eggplant
  • 4 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 cups sliced zucchini
  • 2 cups peeled diced tomatoes or 2 cups canned
  • 2 ½ quarts boiling water
  • ½ cup vermicelli
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated black pepper
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • ½ teaspoon basil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts or sliced blanched almonds
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Wash the beans, cover them with water and bring to a boil, then let soak 1 hour. Drain. Cover with fresh water, bring to a boil and cook 11/2 hours. Drain. Rarely do I plan ahead enough to prepare the beans from dry and so as with most of my vegetable soup recipes I substitute with rinsed canned ones. 

Wash the mushrooms, cover with warm water and let soak 10 minutes. Drain and slice.

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a saucepan; sauté the onion 5 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, eggplant, cabbage and zucchini until coated with the oil. Add tomatoes, water and beans. Bring to a boil and cook over low heat 30 minutes. Mix in the vermicelli, salt and pepper; cook 10 minutes, or until vermicelli is tender.

In an electric blender combine parsley, basil, garlic, nuts, cheese and remaining oil. Turn motor on until paste is formed. Or pound ingredients to a paste, gradually adding oil. Stir into the soup. Serves 8-10.
