Warm Soup for the cold weather
That’s it, winter is here! It is very cold outside and a thick layer of snow covers the ground. It’s time for a nice bowl of hot soup! I don’t know about you, but I like to know the origin of the food I cook. Where it’s coming from and how the recipe started. So, here is a little bit of history of the word minestrone. In the meaning of thick vegetable soup, it was attested in English from 1871. The word comes from the Italian word for “that which is served”, and cognitively similar to “administer” as in “administer a remedy”. This soup could often contain herbs, beans, bits of pasta, ect., and it is served with Parmesan cheese.
