Minestrone Soup with Rice


Cold weather means hearty soups and my favourite is minestrone.   This is my first time trying minestrone in the Thermomix.   I substituted rice for pasta shells and it came out like a risotto, delicious with some shaved parmesan and toasted gluten free sour dough bread.
