THE BEST Minestrone Soup Recipe

This is THE BEST Minestrone soup hands down if I do say so myself! This Minestrone Soup Recipe is normally reserved for my 7 Day Cooked Vegan Cleanse participants, but it’s just so yummy I had to share!

Hearty, rich, nourishing, nutritious, gut friendly, vegan friendly and perfect for when you need a cuddle on the inside.

Serves 2 generous serves.


  • 1C chopped tomatoes (vine ripened)

  • 2T concentrated tomato paste

  • 250g jar organic pasta sauce

  • 1C dried cannelloni beans, soaked overnight, drained

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh continental parsley

  • 1C baby spinach

  • 2 carrots, peeled, chopped

  • 2 celery sticks, chopped

  • 1C sweet potato, peeled, chopped

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 2T coconut oil

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 2T fresh basil

  • 2T-4T miso paste (to taste)


Heat fry pan over medium heat with 1T oil. Place the onion carrots, celery and stir until soft, add garlic and stir for one minute. Add sweet potato and stir to combine. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Remove from heat and set aside. In a large soup pot, over medium heat add 1T oil, miso paste, tomatoes, tomato paste, pasta sauce, beans, water, basil, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until beans are tender.

If mix is getting thick , add water to thin. Add onion, carrots, celery, garlic and sweet potato mix and stir to combine. Turn off heat and stir in baby spinach. Adjust to taste with extra salt and pepper if you wish.

Transfer to serving bowls, top with fresh parsley.

Hint: Adding in Sauerkraut to your soups as a garnish before serving makes all your soups taste amazing (and good for your belly!).
