I borrowed the recipe from here: http://www.foodmatters.tv/articles-1/warming-minestrone-soup-with-quinoa-kale-free-recipe, but I made some tweaks to it. Instead of green beans (which I don’t love) I use brussels sprouts, and I only use about 1/2 the tomato. I add vegetable stock to the water and I reduce it down so it’s more stewy than soupy.
The last time I made this it lasted me for 2 weeks worth of lunch (I did get a little sick of it towards the end). It takes an hour, it costs about $20 to make, and it’s healthy!
