A little about this Gluten Free Minestrone Soup with white beans
Just because this Minestrone soup is gluten-free doesn't mean it lacks any flavors. This soup is extremely tasty and very easy to make! Just takes a little chopping and preparation.
Can you freeze Gluten-Free Minestrone Soup with White Beans?
Yes you can freeze this Minestrone soup. I like to make a double batch and freeze in multiple smaller containers that can be taken out and used as individual lunches.Print
Minestrone Soup with White beans. Gluten-free, made with cannellini beans, crushed tomatoes, and pearl barley.
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
3 medium carrots, diced
2 large celery stalks, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 c. chicken broth, preferably organic*
2 T. tomato paste
1 14-oz. can crushed tomatoes, with liquid
2 14-oz. cans cannellini beans drained and rinsed
½ c. pearl barley, rinsed and drained
2 large bay leaves
3” chunk Parmesan cheese rind
1 t. Italian seasoning
3 c. baby spinach, roughly chopped
¼ c. fresh parsley, chopped
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1-2 oz. Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
*For a thinner soup, add additional chicken broth
1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies become soft and aromatic, approximately 4-5 minutes.
2. Add the chicken broth, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, white beans, pearl barley, bay leaves, and Parmesan rind. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and additional salt and black pepper, if desired, and stir to combine.
3. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then immediately reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and gently simmer until the barley is cooked through, approximately 20-25 minutes.
4. Stir in the chopped spinach and parsley. Simmer just until the spinach wilts, approximately 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and discard the bay leaves and remaining cheese rind. Serve immediately sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
