Mia and I went to visit my mum last week; the first time we've seen her since the end of January. Mia is vegetarian so mum had kindly bought lots of veg-based goodies to eat and also gave Mia this gorgeous cook book - 15 minute vegan by Katy Beskow. Mia has been doing lots of cooking during lockdown so I'm sure this will be well used.
I flicked through it on Friday night and the minestrone recipe caught my eye, then when in the veg garden on Saturday morning I realised I had many of the ingredients so decided there and then to make it for lunch. I can confirm it is super quick and so fresh and full of the flavours of summer. Read on for the recipe but first a little background to our lockdown 'no-dig' veg plot.
