Minestrone Soup

This recipe is adapted from Annabel Karmels Feeding your Baby and Toddler( this is not the book that I have but is the same title)
My kids looove this soup they really can't get enough of it. I usually make a big batch sometime during the week and divide it up into kid size portions. It is great for lunch, tea or even dinner with some crusty garlic bread soo good.

Minestrone Soup ( or Minnie-strone soup as boo calls it!)

  • 1-2 carrots (depending on the size)
  • 1 potato diced

  • handful of frozen peas
  • pasta shapes ( sometimes I just break up spaghetti into small strands)
  • 1 ltr of chicken or veg stock
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 3 tbsp passata

  • add celery, carrot and leeks and saute for 5 mins
  • add potatoes and courgette and saute for 2-3 mins
  • add  stock tomatoes, tomato puree passata, bring the boil and simmer for 20 mins
