Autumn Minestrone Soup

A friend at work let me borrow her copy of Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special: More Than 275 Recipes for Soups, Stews, Salads, & Extras. There are a number of recipes that I want to try. So many that I will be purchasing the book. I made the Autumn Minestrone Soup this weekend and we had it tonight for dinner. When I was making the soup my husband came into the house and declared that the soup smelled delicious! And yes I forgot to copy the recipe. It had onion, butternut squash, potato, celery, carrots, kale and cannellini beans. The recipe called for vegetable broth, but I used chicken broth.
The soup was delicious. It did need parmasen cheese. We had some toasted Italian bread and Fontinella cheese. A perfect meatless meal.

Love minestrone soup! This is a perfect autumn soup. I can hardly wait for the weather to cool down.

By the way, the Moosewood cookbook is really great.

Do you really have different soup for different seasons??? Really interesting! I've spent a year staying at N.Zealand about 20 years ago but I've never heard any of my friends mentioned about this before. Would love to find out more and thank you for sharing. Have a nice weekend!
