GF Minestrone Soup

Parker was feeling pretty sick this past week with a high fever. And along with his high fevers were febrile seizures which I just hate. Even though they're harmless, they're still not pleasant to see in your 2 year old. He spent 3 days not eating very much at all (he ate a buckwheat waffle and half a pair one day) until the late afternoon of Day 4 when he was asking for soup. I decided on Minestrone Soup but the kind I always used to make had wheat pasta in it. So I decided to a veggie and bean only minestrone and serve it over brown rice. Topped with some parmesan cheese and it was good!

GF Minestone Soup
  • 1 can diced organic tomatoes
  • 1 large leek, sliced white and light green parts only
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrotrs, chopped
  • 2 celery, chopped
  • 1 potato, cubed
  • 1 small zuchinni, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup green beans, chopped
  • 1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 bunch of spinach, chopped (I use frozen spinach patties by Europe's Best when I don't have fresh on hand)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oregano
  • 8 cups water
Add all veggies and seasonings to pot and bring to a boil. Turn down heat to medium-low and simmer for 45 minutes. Add in beans and let simmer 10 more minutes. Ladle over a bowl of hot cooked brown rice and top with some parmesan cheese.
