"Fat Free" Vegan Minestrone Soup

A soup that eats like a meal, Another of my bulk freezable meals as we face the winter months to be prepared.   Makes 19 Dinners!

I suggest using a 10 Litre pot or larger for this one, These ingredients are an approximate guide      
2 large Onions diced
1kg Carrots sliced
half Celery sliced

500gm Green Beans
Zucchini sliced (optional)
Pea's (frozen or fresh)
500gm Corn (frozen or fresh)
2 small or 1 large Cabbage (sliced thinly)
3 Cans Crushed tomato
Vegetable stock (massel brand is vegan if in Australia)
1 large jar Tomato Paste
Risoni or macaroni (there's no rule to what pasta you use)

2x Tins Borlotti Beans
1 bunch thyme stripped of the stalks
1 bunch Parsley chopped
5 Litres cold Water
Salt & Pepper to taste

In a very large 10+ litre pot Add the chopped Onions, Carrots and Celery till the onion is translucent, If they may stick to the bottom just add a tiny touch of water to help fry without using oil.

Add the Beans, Corn, Peas, Cabbage, Zucchini and Tomatoes now stir for 2mins to get everything well combined and started cooking. Add the Thyme here.

Add the Stock and Water and Tomato Paste stir let the cabbage wilt down further and add the pasta and herbs, After 5mins before turning off the stove add the Parsley and Borlotti Beans this is last minute so they don't break down too much, Best served with some warm crusty baguette or ciabatta Bread. Makes approx 19 meals. Enjoy! =)
