Minestrone Recipe – Another Easy & Delicious Crock Pot Recipe

Minestrone is easy to make, and there are a ton of recipes out there with different ingredients.  I don’t know that there’s anything spectacularly different about this one but I love it, and wanted to put it out there.  Feel free to play around with the types of veggies and amounts.  The basil pesto topping is a MUST!  You can find that recipe in Recipes on this site, or in the Forks Over Knives Cookbook.

This minestrone is packed with hearty veggies and is delicious topped with basil pesto (see in Recipes). This recipe is for a crock pot preparation but the meal can be made on the stove as well. I like to use a combination of garbanzo and cannellini beans. Add the dried herbs towards the end of cooking time, and rub them between your fingers. This helps release volatile oils and increase the herb's flavor.
