Grandma’s Minestrone Soup

Grandma’s Minestrone Soup recipe is my Italian grandma’s recipe. My Mum gave it to me years ago when I left home so I would eat, and it became my go-to during chemo. As kids we used to call it Jungle Soup because of all the veggies in it, and we loved it. Grandma always used fresh borlotti beans from her garden, but canned are fine. I like to use less water for a really thick soup, more like a stew but you can add stock or water to taste. In Italy, this type of soup is often eaten at room temperature in the summertime. You can top it with fresh basil then leave it to cool down before it is eaten. If you are using soup that’s been stored in the refrigerator, bring it to room temperature before serving it.
