writing-pad-3193199_1920

VEGETARIAN MINESTRONE

  • 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • basil
  • marjoram
  • minced onions (can use a real onion, just didn’t have any)
  • Seasoning
  • 2 zucchini (I sliced them thinly and then I quartered each slice)
  • yellow pepper, diced
  • 2 c. cabbage, diced
  • 2 cans light kidney beans
  • 2 cans dark kidney beans
  • 2 cans cannellini beans
  • 1 c. rice (though I would probably cut that down to a half because it thickens it a lot)
  • 4 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 qt. vegetable stock
  • a twirl of splenda to cut the acidity
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • Water to thin it out

It came up to 1 pt per bowl.  I was thoroughly impressed with this.  I had to tweak the seasoning to my taste and Bart could’ve have stood it to have no rice and just add another can of each of the beans.  It was good and it is healthy enough for him to take for his lunches.
