Minestrone Soup w Basil Toastie

My take on the classic, Minestrone. So hearty & nourishing. A weeknight staple come the cooler months.



  1. Water saute the onion, carrot and celery until soft (7-10 minutes approx).
  2. Add the next eight ingredients to the pot and bring to the boil. Once boiling, add the pasta and cook until the pasta is al dente. Meanwhile prepare the toastie.
  3. To make the toastie, place the cheese and basil between the two pieces of bread and then lightly spread the exterior facades with the vegan butter. Toast in a sandwich press (or in a fry pan if you don't have one).
  4. Once the pasta is cooked, reduce to a simmer and season to perfection with the pepper (the stock and tomatoes already add a saltiness to the soup). You may need to add more water, if it has reduced to far down. Warm through and serve with the toastie.
