Almost minestrone - Summer vegetable

Submitted by: PHRASER

Introduction

A minestrone without pasta, using summer vegetables and chickpeas. Smoked paprika replaces the bacon but gives a smoky flavour. Cook up at the start of the week for lunches - makes a week's worth for two people. If you like salty things, you may wish to add salt.

Directions

Finely chop all the non-canned vegetables. Drain the chickpeas. Mince the garlic.

Heat the oil in a large soup kettle. Cook the onion until it goes clear and limp. Add the garlic, carrot and celery. Cook until the carrot and celery are brightly coloured.

Add the remaining non-canned vegetables and cook, stirring for 2-3 minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer, covered until vegetables are as done as you like them. Adjust seasoning if it's not to your taste.

Serve with salad and bread. If your diet allows, a little bit of parmesan or pesto stirred in just before serving is nice.
This freezes well and lasts 5 days in the fridge.
