Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Real Food Recipes - Hearty Minestrone Soup

3 T. extra virgin, expeller-pressed olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large stalk celery, finely chopped
1 t. dried basil
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. dried rosemary
8 c. chicken bone stock (click here for recipe)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 thin-skinned potatoes, largely diced
2 carrots, peeled and largely diced
2/3 c. organic small brown rice shell pasta or elbow macaroni (Tinkyada brown rice pasta
is excellent)
1 (16-oz.) can red or white kidney beans
1/4 c. tomato paste
2 c. kale leaves or green cabbage, finely shredded
1 1/2 c. Jack or Parmesan cheese, shredded

Directions: Heat oil in a 6-quart pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, and herbs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, about 7 minutes. Add stock, garlic, potatoes, carrots and pasta. Increase heat. Cover pot and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until pasta is barely tender, about 15 minutes. Mix in beans and bean liquid, tomato paste and kale (or cabbage). Simmer uncovered, until kale is barely tender and soup is heated through, about 5-10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with grated cheese, if desired. Serves 8.
