Snap Pea Minestrone Soup

John and I made this soup a couple of nights ago and can not stop raving about it’s health benefits as well as its incredibly simple, yet gourmet flavor! We took the recipie from Sunset Magazine’s February issue, but made it extra nutritious by omitting the ham, chicken broth and butter and adding kale, mushrooms, veggie broth and olive oil instead of butter. You can easily “Veganize” this recipie by keeping the egg and cheese out. This is a hearty, one pot meal that the whole family will love! Make it tonight!

But then I have a slight twinge of nostalgia for the spicy, rich foods of the fall and winter, and want one last round before I let my oven take a vacation for the summer.
