Arame Pasta Minestrone

Serves 8.

Arame Pasta Minestrone

Arame is a dark brown Japanese sea veg sold as long, wiry strands that are rich in dietary fibre. Its mild flavour makes arame one of the most versatile seaweeds and a great addition to salads and soups, as it won’t overpower other ingredients. Each spoonful of this nourishing guise of minestrone is sheer comfort.

Tips

  • This soup will thicken upon resting, so stir in additional broth when simmering leftovers.
  • Rehydrated and chopped kombu or wakame can be used in lieu of arame, and other bean choices include cranberry, kidney, cannellini, or orca.

Spill the beans

In Asia, lightly sweet red aduzki beans are used in everything from soups to desserts. The legumes are also packed with a nutritional bounty including fibre, protein, and vital minerals. Soak dried aduzki beans overnight, and then simmer in a pot of water until tender, about 40 minutes.
