Vegetable Minestrone Soup

Winter wellness in a bowl. What we absolutely love about Minestrone Soup is that it has the ability to use up any leftover vegetables which you may have in the house. Creating a really affordable winter wellness option for the whole family.

We’ve used Nutra Organics Vege Broth as it contains all the good stuff – calcium, zinc, folate and other B vitamins to support immunity and gut during the cooler months.
