Check out this Spring Minestrone recipe!
This Spring Minestrone soup is easy and versatile. The ingredients I included are just what I happened to have in my pantry. It turned out wonderful. The sunchokes add a distinct flavor- potatoes could be also be used if you are unable to find sunchokes. The next time I make this soup I may try including a can of chick peas and some Bacon.
The instructions for this Spring Minestrone soup are simple- just throw everything into the pot- bring to a boil and cook until the vegetables are cooked through. I recommend adding the Asparagus and Spinach last as they cook the quickest.
