Chickpea Minestrone

The rain…the cold…the darkness.

Those things all scream “SOUP WEATHER” to me. I personally love soup. Whether its creamy and thick or light and brothy, full of veggies or just one delicious ingredient focus, the overall consensus for my stomach is the more soup the better. Although, the cold weather is icky it serves as the perfect reason to have more soup in your life.

Another reason I love soups in the winter is because I can pack in all those veggies. I value and care for my immune system, so once winter peaks its ugly head I try and load up on all the nutrients I can handle.

Chickpea Minestrone

This soup is so easy to make. In fact….it requires only one pot. It is full of vegetables that will keep your tummy full and your immune system roaring.

Garlic Bread

Although, most of the vegetables are interchangeable and the amounts vary I do highly recommend the red wine aspect. It creates an irresistible aroma during the cooking process and leaves the soup with a rich and full body. Your tongue will be asking for seconds! Pair it with a nice garlic bread and cozy up on the couch for a delicious meal you can have for those frigid winter nights.
