Recipe: harissa minestrone soup

When the chilly weather rolls in, it’s great to have a long list of soup recipes on hand. Minestrone is a classic winter warmer and this version, with added lentils and delicious chorizo sausage, bumps the traditional version up a notch. It even tastes better the following day.

Tips:

  • For a vegetarian version, replace the chorizo with 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • Use beluga or puy lentils. They hold their shape better, giving the soup more texture.

If you liked this recipe, try this roast carrot soup served with parsley ricotta.
