Vegan Minestrone

Hi guys! You guys asked for it..so here I am to bring it to you! I love this soup. It’s always good, always comforting, and a total crowd pleaser! There’s something about a bunch of veggies in a soup that always fills me up and makes me feel really healthy!

I also love a soup that has a bit of spice! 🙂
