I could eat vegetable minestrone every single day. Soup is just one of those meals that I love to have any time of year that you can pack with a variety of vegetables. I grew up eating the best minestrone! So, I like to recreate it each season with different vegetables. If you have a garden where you grow tomatoes, there’s nothing like adding those fresh tomatoes to homemade minestrone.
In this minestrone, I used my favorite purple potatoes (I call them Lavender potatoes because it just sounds fancy) Penn’s Corner Farm Stand. Have you ever had purple potatoes? Many people have not even heard of them. They taste like a regular potatoes, not as sweet as a sweet potato, but they are packed with antioxidants. Colorful foods provide an array of nutrients our bodies need. The anthocyanins give them their beautiful color. So the more you eat the rainbow, the more nutrients you will provide your body.
Penn’s Corner Farm Stand Ordering is now opened, and ordering closes Thursday by 2pm! Give the Purple Potatoes a try and let me know what you think.
