Simple Springtime Minestrone

One of my favorite times of year is Spring so it makes sense to add Springtime Minestrone as the first recipe here in March 2024...

A Greek or an Italian salad is always a perfect complimentary dish to have with any soup.


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin oil

  • 2 quarts of veggie or chicken broth

  • 1 medium leek, thinly sliced

  • 1 bunch of asparagus, sliced

  • 2 medium carrots, chopped

  • 1/2 cup or more of spinach

  • 3 medium red potatoes, cut into 3/4 inch pieces

  • 1 15-ounce can of navy beans

  • 2 tablespoons of dill

  • 2 teaspoons of thyme

  • Add salt and pepper to your liking

The Plan

Start food prepping...

Slice the veggies.

Set the veggies aside in a bowl.

Measure out the seasonings and salt+pepper and set aside in a bowl.

Start cookin'...

Heat olive oil on medium heat in saucepan on stovetop. Add carrots, leek, thyme and salt. Cook for 8-10 minutes. Add potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil before reducing heat to simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes.

Final Touches...

Add asparagus and simmer for about 3 minutes or until they are tender. Stir in spinach, navy beans, dill, pepper and salt to your liking.
