Fall is in the air, and there is nothing like a homemade pot of soup on the stove on a chilly day. I usually make traditional chicken soup, or kale and bean soup, but since I was trying out this new Knorr Homestyle Stock, I decided to use their recipe for Classic Minestrone. The recipe and many more can be found right on the Knorr website.
Knorr Homestyle Stock provides a new and convenient way to always have flavorful stock on hand. While I do make stock myself on occasion, it is not always practical, and would never be enough to cover my need for it in recipes. Sure you can freeze leftovers, but I personally don’t have a whole lot of spare freezer space. Cartons of stock are another popular option, but these can be space hogs too, especially around the holidays, when a lot is needed. Knorr Homestyle Stock is concentrated and packaged in small tubs, a real space saver.
The tubs are quite small, and the concentrate inside has a more gel-like, rather than sticky consistency. I was surprised when the concentrated stock popped out of the tiny tub so cleanly. Each tub makes 3 1/2 cups of stock.
Here is the minestrone soup recipe I got off the Knorr website.
The only changes I made to the minestrone recipe, when I made it this weekend, were the addition of a bay leave and extended simmer time. If you want to prepare this soup in the time they suggest, I would recommend dicing the carrots very small and reducing the amount of water to 4 rather than 5 cups.
Keep your eyes open for Knorr Homestyle Stock at a retailer near you. I know it is currently stocked in Super Walmarts, since that is where I picked it up.
