We're near the end of the winter months of dark coldness, but just because it's getting warm doesn't mean we don't need warming soup every other night or so, just to fill us up and make us right. This minestrone, with all the great elements including beans and pasta, fills that bill and more so, with garlic bread on the side just to wrap things up with a bow. Cold night? Warm yourself up right here.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Meatlovers! If adding protein, cook with 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using Impossible burger, break up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes. If using ground beef or ground pork, break up until no pink remains and protein reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Add to soup as desired.
