    This sounds so good, and perfect for the winter weather we are about to have! And your photo on the plano profile is great.

    Your article was wonderful, Amy! Thanks for sharing the link with us! I pre-ordered your book, too. Can’t wait to get it!

    This soup looks devine! I printed it to have a go later in the week.

    This looks really good! I love minestrone soup, but it almost always has pasta in it.

    I am one month “sober” from gluten and your recipes have been a godsend! Thank you so much!

    Hi Amy… The minestrone looks fabulous! Many congrats on the very-soon-to-be-released book, and on the great media coverage. All well-deserved! And I must say…after working together with Kelli on a GF cupcake cookbook for the last 4+ months – and experiencing a pretty healthy dose of cupcake burnout – the cupcakes in your photo spread in the magazine still made my mouth water. Beautiful!

    Cheers, Pete

    Hi, the soup looks really good but right now I’m interested in the microplane gadget that you mentioned. Never heard of “microplane” before. Looked it up, found they have a wide range of products available. So what is it that you used?

    Amy Reply:

    @Michelle, If you go back to the recipe, I linked to the one that I used. :) It’s in the actual recipe.

    Hugs,

    Yummy soup Amy. And very Maggie friendly, I will definitely have to make it. Love the loads of garlic. Pete tucked a microplane into my stocking too. Congratulations on the book success Amy. Good things happen to good people. xo

    @Amy,
    Just made your soup! I’ve never used fennel seed before so it was good for me to try something new! It’s delicious. Can’t wait to serve it to my guests tonight. xo

    Congratulations on your article and btw you look beautiful! No runny make-up!
    I had no idea you had so much trouble getting into culinary school. Was it because you needed to substitue ingredients.
    Hmm i bet you will be teaching the professors a thing or two, and perhaps one day you will be teaching a class for gluten and sugar free cooking!
    Shake a leg girl!!!!

    @Christianne, I think that the schools weren’t confident I wouldn’t have health problems (which I don’t) and they weren’t sure they could teach me if I couldn’t eat what they were making in class. I don’t have any special ingredient substitutions in my classes – Chef encourages me to smell, cut, and get into the texture of what we’re baking. I learn so much that way.

    Hugs!

    Hi Amy,

    I made this soup last night. It was excellent. I had soo much fun chopping up veggies I had to cook it in 2 pots.

    thanks for all the great recipes.

    Amy, congratulations on your book. So excited to see it. This recipe looks great as well. I make minestrone soup alot, but haven’t used sweet potatoes or parsnips in it. I will have to try it.
    BTW, I can’t seem to get this recipe to print.

    @Saundra, Thanks, Saundra! And, I fixed the recipe print issue. It should be working now. :)

    What a wonderful-looking minestrone! I too have embraced the gluten-free and sugar-free lifestyle so it’s always exciting to find a whole blog filled with recipes that meet my requirements! I’m definitely going to put parsnips into my next batch of minestrone. I often add 1 cup of quinoa pasta so I don’t feel deprived. :) And I agree about the need for a good bread with a great bowl of soup — especially garlic bread!

    @The Omnivore, LOVE quinoa pasta. What brand do you use?

    [Reply]

    The Omnivore Reply:

    @Amy, I use Ancient Harvest. I recommend the shells in soup — they’re small enough to fit comfortably on a spoon.

    @The Omnivore, Thanks. I will have to look for those.
