Easy January Minestrone Soup Recipe in 30 Minutes is a great way to start your diet. It’s an awesome comfort food as well. Believe me, this soup is so easy to make and outrageously delicious. The great thing is, it can be made in about half and hour. I add a combination of veggies such as celery, carrots, and asparagus. Of course you can add your choice of veggies. To tell you the truth, I simply add what’s left over in the fridge from the Holidays.

In the winter we always start our diet and there is nothing better than some comfort food to kick it off. That's when I always love a bowl of hot minestrone soup. There is just something about it that aids the heart and soul.

  1. Add the oil, onion, garlic, carrots, and celery to a large pot. Stir and saute until the garlic is fragrant and the veggies begin to tenderize. 

  2. Pour in the beef stock and bay leaves. Bring it to a boil.

  3. Add in the tomatoes, kidney beans, noodles, asparagus, salt, pepper, basil, and Italian seasoning. Stir, place a lid on, and allow to simmer until the noodles are tender. This should take about 10 to 12 minutes. 

  4. Ladle the soup into a bowl, serve, and enjoy your minestrone soup.

The seasoning is optional as well.
