Be sure to try this Italian-inspired recipe for dinner this week. If you’ve been wondering how to make Tuscan vegetable soup, you’ll be surprised how easy it really is! All you have to do is heat a small amount of oil in a pot then add minced celery and garlic. After the vegetables have had a chance to saute for about five minutes, simply add diced potatoes and carrots to the pot along with vegetable stock. While the soup simmers, continue to add the rest of the vegetables until it’s ready to serve in about thirty minutes. While the soup is cooking on the stovetop, be sure to bake a batch of Kodiak Cakes Homestead Cornbread for the perfect complementary side to this healthy, savory soup!
