Thanksgiving is just a few days away and sweet potatoes will probably be on your table in some form. You might be having the ultra sweet ones with marshmallows, the mashed kind or maybe even sweet potato pie. I prefer the simple and easy version that still keeps its texture and can be on your plate next to your traditional mashed potatoes. If you are going to someone’s house and need to bring a side, this is definitely something that travels well and is a great complement to the rest of the spread.
A hearty soup made from scratch packed with tender white beans, veggies and gluten-free pasta. I chose to make this soup in an instant pot because I wanted to use dry beans, not canned and the instant pot cooks the beans much faster. I find that most canned beans are loaded with table salt, tend to be mushy and they certainly don't taste as flavourful as when they are when cooked fresh. I added Italian herbs and spices, tomatoes and pasta to give the soup an authentic Italian flavour and I topped the soup with plenty of fresh Parmesan cheese. This white bean minestrone soup is most certainly a nourishing meal in a bowl.
