Minestrone SoupMake on Drop
I do love a pot of minestrone. THIS one, is soooo good. As I am writing this, I have decided to add this to my menu for the week ahead. It has cooled down a little on my side of the world, and this is just the comforting ticket to make it feel like winter is just around the corner but that it is all going to be OK.
It will feed quite a few and we have photographed it in a similar insulated pot to our very popular ThermoPot, which actually keeps everything hot for up to eight hours. I am talking scalding, piping ready to serve hot.
