Vegetarian Minestrone Stoup (GF)

I’m not sure that I can convey how much I like this soup.

Although, it is so chunky and amazing, it really should probably be called a stoup. It is full of butternut squash, carrots and tomato-y goodness – and with some Italian spices, this stew/soup/stoup is one of my personal favorites. For forever.

Minestrone Stoup (GF)

3 c tomatoes
3 c vegetable stock
1 t thyme
2 T basil
1 T oregano
2 c cooked white beans
2 c cooked garbanzo beans
1 c uncooked butternut squash
1/2 c onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Sauté the onions and garlic and once the onions are translucent, add the carrots. Sauté for a few minutes before adding the butternut squash, 2 cups of the vegetable stock and spices.

Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and cover. Let simmer until the carrots and butternut squash are at the desired consistency.

2. Add the tomatoes remaining vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Keep at a rolling boil for five minutes.

3. Add the beans and cook the soup until boiling, then reduce to a low heat. You don’t want to overcook the beans. Serve immediately.

Because this minestrone doesn’t have pasta, it will be good as leftovers, but I recommend freezing what you won’t eat in the next day or two.

  1. I love minestrone soup, especially in the winter 🙂 Joe makes a really good one, and we freeze the leftovers so I have something to enjoy after a cold run! His recipe looks very similar to yours (sans white beans…he’s only allowed to put garbanzos in there since they’re the only bean I like 😉 ), although he adds pancetta for some salt/flavor, which makes it not vegetarian in the slightest. It adds a nice pop of flavor though if you eat meat!


  2. I haven’t had minestrone soup in ions! It’s about time that I make a pot. This looks like a delicious and hearty soup and I love how you’ve added butternut squash. Great idea. Yum!


  3. This is totally minestrone! Love how hearty it looks–all of those wonderful ingredients! This is the kind of soup I’m always in the mood for.


  4. Hi Laura,
    What a pleasure it is to discover your delightful recipe for such a delicious, “comfort” food! I love to make soups and your recipe for vegetarian minestrone is amazing! I am so glad to discover your delightful recipe and your wonderful blog at Healthy Vegan Fridays. I have subscribed and am following your blog on social media so I can enjoy your recipes and posts regularly. All the best, Deborah


  5. This looks yummy! One of the munchkins and I made a butternut squash soup at a cooking class and adored it. When we made it at home the rest of the horde completely rejected it. 😦 Veggie fail. However, this looks so yummy, I could always cook the squash on the side and add it to the two bowls that want it…


    • Sometimes a fail is when we get more for us, right? And I think that’s a great idea – or serve it in squash for those of you who like it!
