Bron's version Minestrone
« on: May 22, 2009, 12:41:49 am »
Minestrone:
serves 4-5:
Ingredients:
500g veg (I use up all leftovers, carrot, small turnip, courgette, parsnip, artichoke hearts, fresh green asparagus, peas, green beans, peppers, celery)
50g olive oil
50g onion
20g tomato pure (tomato past to most of us) or tomato pizza sauce (I always have in the fridge!)
1 clove garlic
50g bacon or serrano ham (in bits, can be chopped in THX in a few short turbo blasts)
1000g THX chicken or veg stock concentrate (I use veg)
pepper
50g round grain rice
50g grated parmesan cheese
50g butter
Chopped flat parsley
Preparation:
Grate cheese.
Place all the veg in THX and chop 5 seconds Speed 4. (Except peas, artichoke and asparagus as these look nice hand chopped/whole) Keep aside.
Place garlic & onion in THX, blitz 2 seconds Speed 5, Add oil and bacon/ham, program 5 mins 100º speed 2.
Add stock and program 8 mins 100º speed 2. (I skip this step by adding boiling water from kettle!) ;)
Add remaining vegetables, tomato, black pepper and rice and program 15 mins 100º reverse, speed 1.
Pour into serving bowl, add parsley, parmesan and butter. Stir.

Tips/Hints:
I find it doesnt need salt, as I use THX stock and of course the bacon/ham is quite salty.
You can use small pasta shapes instead of rice. Both are lovely!
Wonderful recipe to clear out fridge! I make it every couple of weeks... ;)

JD - This is perfect for us as DH has never liked tomato based minestrone which most other recipes are. Did rice today but next time will try the small pasta shapes instead.

salval -  It was delicious. Thanks for a lovely recipe.

Great recipe and yes - always a good one for using up those bits that didn't make it into the dish they were originally purchased for -!!!
