Minestrone. Once in a while I make my own minestrone from scratch, buying all the vegetables I like, cutting them into regular cubes and freezing them in portions, to have it ready when I feel like having a bowl of comforting soup.

The result is a deep green olive oil which makes the artichokes shimmer, and is also so tasty that you will finish your bread mopping the olive oil directly from the pan. And you will also lick your fingers. #tuscanfood #artichokes
