Greetings from Bella Italia
June 1st, 2018 | main dishes
The temperatures keep up with Bella Italia, the bright colours of this Italian Minestrone soup make you happy.

Close your eyes and dream a little bit about Italy… A light meal for those hot days, a feast for all the senses.

I spice up a lot of dishes with vanilla, because vanilla does not only fit in desserts, but is also a very delicious spice with hearty treats. I put each scraped vanilla pod in a tin box with brown sugar, which quickly assumes the wonderful vanilla flavour. A teaspoon of this sugar is often the icing on a dish.
