Tuscan Minestrone Soup

Minestrone literally means ‘soup’ in Italian. To be more precise, they often call it ‘the big soup’, because of the rich variety of ingredients. Actually there is no fixed recipe for minestrone soup. Often the soup was made from seasonal vegetables or leftovers.

To honor the name ‘big soup’, we chose as many Mediterranean vegetables as possible, including red paprika and leek. Our red paprika comes all the way from Spain, where it gets its tasteful flavor through the warm sun. The leek in our soup used to be famous among the ancient Romans, who ate a lot of leek. Take the Roman emperor Nero for example . He was so fond of it that he was called “Porrophagus”, which means leek-eater. Those Romans were weird guys, don’t you think?
