Fast Food: Fast Minestrone

Fast Minestrone
There are times when I'm tempted to go out for "fast food", because I'm just too tired to cook.  In fact, "fast food" is usually slow - it takes time and energy to get there, wait in line, get home.  It's faster, cheaper, and healthier to throw together a quick meal at home.

Here's one of the fastest, easiest recipes ever.

Fast Minestrone

400g can diced tomatoes
125g can tomato paste
1 litre water
1 can four bean mix or five bean mix - drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon vegetable stock powder
2 cups mixed chopped vegetables (suitable vegetables include potato, carrot, celery, green beans, onion, capsicum, sweet potato, peas.) Frozen mixed diced vegetables are OK.
Half cup basmati rice

Put all ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 minutes.
Serves 4.

Recipe is gluten free, lactose free, vegan friendly, low GI, low fat, high fibre.
