Minestrone Soup

Chock-full of veggies in a tomatoey broth, pretty much any minestrone you come across is going to be a reasonably good choice. But the real spoiler is sodium, which is off the charts in most typical recipes and prepared versions. This mouthwatering meal in a bowl is case in point that you don't need to lean on salt for flavor when you use lots of herbs like basil, oregano, and parsley and aromatics like garlic and onion.
